Lady Violette's Lavender Orange Cosmo

An elegant fruit and flower cocktail created by Lady Violette with the lavender liquor Parfait Amour and delicately scented with orange blossoms via a whisper of Absolute Mandarin…


Absolute Mandarin – 1.5 oz

Parfait Amour  – .5 oz

Fresh Lime Sour  – 1 oz

Cranberry Juice – 1 oz

Shake and Pour.

Serve in a martini glass with a Lavender Sugar rim. Garnish with two slices of fresh orange with the peel. Decorate with a sprig of fresh lavender in summer and an edible orange blossom or orange pansy or viola flower float when in season.  A cocktail as visually delicious as it tastes! Enjoy!

This was inspired by the Lavender Cosmo I tasted at the Northgate Stanford’s Restaurant in Seattle, WA, where you can try their version if you don’t want to make your own. I took their listed ingredients and tweaked it to come up with Lady Violette’s Lavender Orange Cosmo. Upon inquiring I found that all the restaurants in their chain serve their Stanford’s Lavender Cosmo. They were unable to tell me who originally invented their recipe but I will be happy to list that credit if I do find out. It was also delicious! So delicious I was inspired to come home and create my own version!
