Yield: 1 Serving
- Splash of orange blossom water
- 3 1/2 ounces vodka
- 1 1/2 ounces fresh pineapple juice
- 1 ounce cranberry juice
- Splash of peach schnapps
- 1 pansy blossom, for garnish
Pour a splash of orange blossom water into a chilled martini glass
and swirl it around to coat the glass with essence of orange blossom.
Add vodka to an ice-filled shaker. (Use vodka that is highly distilled
with a pure flavor that won’t take away from the freshness
of the fruits.)
Add pineapple juice to the shaker. If possible, use fresh juice,
or a brand of juice that has no added sugar. Just before shaking,
add cranberry juice to the shaker. Shake vigorously - these juices
won’t bruise. The colder the juices, the better.
Strain mixture into martini glass, making sure to pour "around
the glass" to catch all the drippings of orange blossom water.
Finish by floating a bit of Peach Schnapps on the top of the martini
and adding the "Tantric Kiss"- an aphrodisiac-laden edible
