As I mentioned a few posts ago, I got older and someone gave me a bottle of Cherry Blossom Elixir for my birthday. I decided to experiment with it.
I decided to take a bottle of vodka that I purchased a while ago to make Moscow Mules (remember that?) and combine it with one of the recipes on the back of the bottle.
I know it says adventurous cocktails, but let’s not get too crazy… What I did chose for this cocktail was Absolut Kurant vodka – so maybe I was a little exploratory with this cocktail. I really developed a taste for Kurant when I was introduced to it in London during a few homestays. I wish it was as big in the United States as it is there.
So here’s the recipe I used to make this floral yet fruity concoction.
Kurant Cherry Blossom Fizz
2oz Absolut Kurant Vodka
0.5oz Cherry Blossom Elixer
Top with club soda
I combined the vodka and the elixir in the tumbler. Then poured into a martini glass and topped with the club soda.
The cocktail was a light cherry blossom shade of pink, which was gorgeous to look at. It was perfect to drink poolside. The elixir itself has cherry and cherry blossom extract so I can imagine that it would be good with a cherry vodka or St. Germain.
I garnished with one of the flowers in the backyard. Lovely, no?
