We mixed up this stunner of a cocktail to close out the week at the studio - vodka infused with dried dragonfruit as the base for vodka tonics. Pink overload!
The flowers of the elderberry plant - Sambucus nigra - are tiny pale stars. Thousands of the small blossoms form intensely aromatic galaxies this time of year, and if you're lucky, you'll come across some. I use mine to infuse vodka.
The bloody mary I want to drink - fragrant herbs, yellow heirloom tomatoes, shallots, and a bit of kick from the vodka and serrano pepper.
