Author Notes: This recipe comes from Pam Wiznitzer of Seamstress—one of our favorite cocktail bars on the Upper East Side. Happy Fourth! Drink up. —Food52
tablespoon butterfly blue pea flowers (find these at a specialty tea shop or order online)
barspoon cherry jam (about 1 teaspoon)
ounce Cherry Heering
ounce lime juice
dashes Peychaud's bitters
ounces soda water
- Infuse the vodka with the flowers for about 10 minutes; you'll see the liquid turn dark blue. Set aside 1 1/2 ounces for the drink—the extra vodka will keep!
- In a highball add the jam, cherry herring, lime and bitters. Fill with crushed ice and layer in the soda water by pouring it gently. Finish with a layer of infused vodka on top. Garnish with a mini American flag (if you like!) and a straw.
