White Cosmopolitan


There's no fear of staining your cocktail dress with this cosmo -- it's made using white cranberry juice. The recipe is from "Cocktails and Amuse Bouches," by chef Daniel Boulud and mixologist Xavier Herit.


  • 1 pesticide-free, food-grade orchid

  • Filtered water

  • Ice cubes

  • 2 ounces vodka

  • 1 ounce elderflower liqueur, such as St. Germain

  • ¾ ounce white cranberry juice

  • ½ ounce lime juice


  1. Place orchid in a 2-inch round ice ball mold; fill with filtered water and freeze.

  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add vodka, elderflower liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime juice; shake vigorously to combine and strain into a small carafe.

  3. Place orchid ice ball in a coupe; pour vodka mixture over ice ball. Serve immediately.
