Bonjour Weekend, Paris, and Couture Cocktails

I hope that you are enjoying the weekend!  I’m hoping to have a relaxing weekend with my family.
This is one of my favourite photo shoots. Tim Walker, Paris, and The Ritz ~ a perfect combination!  This shoot took place before the current renovation that is scheduled to be complete in 2014.

Couture Cocktails
Winter Solstice Cocktail
1 1/2 ounces orange vodka
1/2 ounce orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, preferably from Meyer lemons
                                      Ice cubes                                       
Club soda, chilled
  1 mint leaf, for garnish
              1 raspberry, for garnish              
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, orange liqueur, lemon juice, and ice; shake until well combined. Strain into a chilled martini glass; add a splash of soda. Carefully fold mint leaf in half lengthwise and place the stem end into the opening of the raspberry. Float on top of cocktail and serve immediately.
