Fleur Royale - the prettiest cocktail we've ever made

meg944 | Aug 22, 2010 06:59 AM

1/2 oz. Parfait Amour creme de violette

1/4 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur

sparkling wine

edible flowers (optional)

Pour liqueurs into a champagne glass and top with sparkling wine and an edible flower. We used nasturtiums as the orange contrasted beautifully with the indigo of the drink.


As with a Kir, this would probably be both tasty and pretty made with still white wine - then we'll just call it a Fleur.

It also tasted quite good (spicier, less floral) when we substituted Vya extra dry Vermouth for the St. Germain. Last night we were in full end-of-summer mode, but this version may be more appealing in the fall.

This would likely be very pretty in a martini glass. When the light shines through the drink it's really spectacular.
