Cocktail of the Month: June 2006

The Big O

 


The Big O


Stylish, effervescent and sexy in its simplicity, this amazing libation is one erotic ride of a drink, complete with a seductive rim of raspberry purée. You can substitute any puréed fruit your heart desires. We highly recommend a premium vodka for this martini.


 




4 or 5 fresh raspberries
2 ounces premium vodka
Champagne


In a bowl, muddle the raspberries until mashed to a fine purée. Transfer to a small, shallow bowl. Dip the rim of a chilled cocktail glass in the raspberry purée. Carefully add the vodka without disturbing the prepared rim, and float the Champagne on top.
