I found this cocktail on the web. It looks delicious! I love the idea of floating an orchid blossom in the drink! Lovely!
2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce lemon
1/2 ounce creme de violette
1 ounce simple syrup
1 egg white
edible flower for garnish (optional)
Shake all ingredients vigorously for 30 seconds in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with edible flowers of any variety if you like (an orchid is used here).
