The Austrian Consulate
This is an original cocktail I created after reminiscing about my time in Austria. The hint of elderflower evokes the Austrian Alps, while the blood orange hints at the Italian influences that entered Austrian culture under Austrian rule until the 19th century.
1.5 oz of gin
1.5 oz of freshly squeezed blood orange juice
0.5 oz of St. Germain
4 standard ice cubes for shaking
1 square cube of ice for serving
1 slice of blood orange
Combine the liquids and ice cubes for shaking in a shaker.
Shake for 30 seconds.
Place the cube of ice in a glass and pour the cocktail over. Garnish with the orange slice.
