Drink DuJour: The Caviar Cocktail

“There’s nothing to fear about roe, after all!”

For Alexandre Petrossian, caviar is more than just a luxury reserved for pearl spoons and expensive parties. “We want people to start bringing caviar into their own kitchens and experiment with this fabulous ingredient,” says the Petrossian president of Operations in North America. “Our guests should come away with the notion that caviar can compliment a much wider array of cuisine.”

To that point, the famed house of roe has created caviar powder which captures the roe’s sensational taste and is a perfect complement for pastas, seafood and—you guessed it—cocktails. They have recently introduced the Fleurs de Vers cocktail which incorporates the powder into the mix. “We wanted something unexpected and a bit more exciting to really bring out the caviar flavor,” remarks Petrossian. “There’s nothing to fear about roe, after all!”

 

Fleur de Vers

1 1/2 oz Tanqueray
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
3/4 oz St. Germain Elder Flower
3/4 oz of fresh lemon juice
1 drop of rose water
1/2 tspn Petrossian caviar powder

Shake all of the liquids with ice and strain into a martini or large champagne glass. Top the center of a lemon peel with caviar powder and garnish.
