Recipe: Red Carpet Cocktail with Turkish Dust
Roll out the red carpet and toast the stars with this decadent drink.
- 1 cup ice
- 2 oz. vodka
- 2 oz. orange liqueur
- 1 Tbsp. Pomegranate Molasses, plus more to rim the glass
- 1 wedge of lime
- Seltzer or club soda, to top
In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, vodka, orange liqueur, and pomegranate molasses. Squeeze the juice of the lime wedge into the shaker and add the wedge in as well. Shake vigorously. To rim the glass, combine saffron salt, honey powder, cardamom, and Urfa and pour onto a flat dish. Rim 2 cocktail glasses with molasses. Dip glass in powder mixture to generously coat rims. Store extra rim mixture in a glass jar for future cocktails (it can also be used to rim hot coffee drinks or chai). Carefully pour shaker contents into the prepared glasses. Top with club soda or seltzer.
Serve for brunch or happy hour.
