Drink DuJour: The Caviar Cocktail

by admin | October 18, 2013 12:00 am

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[1] 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.
