At Play Kitchen & Cocktails in Chicago, an all-around beautiful cocktail, the Stardust features Absolut Elyx vodka, coconut puree, peach puree, fresh lime juice, Combier Pamplemousse Rose Liqueur, shaken over ice and strained into a copper coupe. It’s garnished with a flower and spritzed with edible glitter. “While the presentation of the Stardust is playful and beautiful, the vodka takes center stage. I use Absolut Elyx because it’s such a clean tasting and feeling single estate vodka, letting the quality of its ingredients, like the winter wheat, shine. The vodka also helps elevate the fruit-forward flavors and textures within the cocktail. To appropriately serve the Stardust, a copper coupe is the perfect vessel as it keeps the cocktail chilled longer,” said beverage director Mike Finnegan.
