Color Changing Shimmery Phoenix Cocktail - Elderflower and Gin Cocktail
Total Time: 5minutes
Phoenix Cocktail - A gin and elderflower cocktail, that's also a color changing shimmery cocktail! Made with butterfly pea flower infused gin and a fruity, tangy, floral and sweet lemon elderflower syrup. The actual cocktail is ready in 5 minutes. But allow a few hours for the Gin to be infused and the syrup to be chilled.
Strain the gin to remove the flowers. Discard the flowers and pour the gin into a glass bottle. Add the white luster dust and shake it to make a shimmery spirit. Place the gin in the freezer to chill.
Place the ice cube in a heat resistant 4 oz glass (like a rock glass or small tumbler) - this step is optional, and serves to keep the drink nice and cold.
Shake the color changing gin to mix in the luster dust that may have settled to the bottom. Pour 2 oz of the gin into the glass.
Using the back of a spoon, carefully layer the rum 151 over the gin. Using a long nose firelighter or long match stick, light up the rum 151 layer.
Serve the drink with the the lemon and elderflower syrup on the side. Pour the syrup into the drink to change the color of the drink from blue to purple. Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon over the flame to create sparks (optional).
Smother the fire by placing a saucer / small dish over the glass for a few seconds. Stir and serve the drink. Enjoy!
