We didn’t have a name for this drink so we were going to use the first orange flower we thought of — the tiger lily. The second one was marigold, which just doesn’t have the same ring. Turns out tiger lily and marigold are taken.
How’s it taste? Kind of like a mimosa, but more floral, less bubbly — the drink, not the flowers.
- 4 ounces orange juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 ounces Lillet
- 1 ounce cognac
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp orange flower water
- egg white
Pour all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Strain into a wine glass or champagne flute. Remove lid from shaker and spoon extra foam onto the top of the drink. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired.
