About this Cocktail

I lived in Columbus, Ohio for 8 years and still have family that live there. The Mitchell restaurant group has excellent food and an equally excellent beverage program. The Black Orchid is a standard at their Restaurant M and has become my wife's favorite. Thanks to nice for posting the recipe.

  • 1 oz Raspberry Vodka
  • 1 oz Elderflower liqueur (St. Germaine)
  • 1 oz White Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Simple Syrup

Shake and strain in a martini glass. M uses ice balls with frozen flowers inside. I add raspberries. Plain white cranberry juice can be hard to find so I often use a white cranberry-peach blend. Also, I prefer to use a better unflavored vodka and replace the simple syrup with Torani Raspberry syrup. The full link for the recipe is here -
