The cosmo is an embellished descendant of the classic gimlet, made with lime juice and gin. It’s also a kissing cousin of the vodka-based kamikaze and of another cranberry cooler, the Cape Codder. Here, elderflower lends a wonderful aroma to this riff on a perennial cocktail. If you’re looking for other uses for elderflower liqueur, try adding a splash to Prosecco or use it to flavor panna cotta.

Ingredients:

  • Ice as needed
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 2 Tbs. St-Germain elderflower liqueur 
  • 2 Tbs. white cranberry juice
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • Edible flowers for garnish

Directions:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, elderflower liqueur, white cranberry juice and lemon juice. Cover, shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Float a flower on top and serve immediately. Serves 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wedding drink Had this drink at my wedding as one of the specialty options and it was a huge hit. I chose it because it was white/clear and I wanted very few colored drinks near my dress. Many guests even asked the bartenders for the recipe. Strongly recommend and will be using it again for other celebrations.
