Elderflower Martini

Recipe courtesy Grey Whale Bar, Mendocino, CA

The Grey Whale Bar adheres to the local, sustainable ethos of Chef Alan Kantor, who, when seeking a sparkler to add effervescence to this martini, goes straight to his Mendocino neighbors at Roederer Estate.

2 ounces Skyy vodka
1 ounce St-Germain
½ ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
½ ounce Roederer Estate sparkling wine
4 dashes of orange bitters
Dried rose bulb and rose petals, for garnish

Fill a shaker with ice.

Add the first five ingredients. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with 1 dried rose bulb and rose petals and serve.
