Cupid's Arrow Cocktail

Contributor: Jason Diamond

Just in Thyme for Valentine's Day! Jason has whipped up a scrumptious new cocktail using one of my favorite things: Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.

Make ahead. Hibiscus Infused Vodka:

1 750 ml. bottle of vodka

1/2 c. dried hibiscus flower petals

Mix together in large non-reactive container (not metal) and let steep for two to three hours. Stir a few times. Strain through mesh strainer.

Wet 1/4 rim of martini glass, dip in sugar. Set aside.

In shaker:

1/8 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Cherry liquid from jar.

1/2 oz. Fresh lime juice

2 oz. Cointreau

2 oz. Hibiscus infused vodka


Shake 30 seconds, strain into glass. Garnish with one maraschino cherry and lime rind or mint leaf.
