Cocktail for Spring Fling Dinner?
I'm hosting a dinner party to celebrate spring (pork loin, braised leeeks, roast baby potatoes, etc). I need a KILLER specialty cocktail recipe to serve folks before dinner starts. Any ideas?
I loved the PomIranian recipe from Cyrus that I made for our holiday party. Something like this but more spring-like would be ideal...
Flatiron Lounge in NYC made this amazing cocktail called a Juniper Breeze which was really the essence of spring.
1 1/2 oz Plymouth Gin
1/2 oz Belvoir Elderflower Cordial
1 1/2 oz Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz Cranberry
splash fresh lime juice
Build over ice in a double rocks glass, roll.
It's best with the somewhat pricey elderflower cordial, but I've found that Ikea makes a very inexpensive elderflower something that's good in a pinch, but you have to add a bit more.
