Happy Hour: Startini

You know how much I love exclusive specialty cocktails so when I was sent the recipe for The Star Lounge of New York City's fresh new Spring drink I was giddy with excitement. The Star Lounge is right below the famed Chelsea Hotel, a 70s hotspot and one time home to Edie Sedgwick and Jimi Hendrix. Not only was I thrilled to be able to try out and share a new recipe with you but this one came with something special: a bottle of vodka! Level vodka is smooth and clean and works wonderfully in the cocktail although you can substitute your go-to brand. This drink would be great for a themed party punch and its vibrant cranberry color makes it look as tempting as it tastes. Watch out though, it packs a powerful punch and I wouldn't drink too many of these too quickly. To raise our glasses and Cheers (TGIF!!!),

From The Star Lounge

1½ parts vodka (suggested: Level)
1 part Cointreau
½ part Dekuyper Crème de Peche
1 part Sour Mix
Splash of Cranberry Juice
Star Fruit Garnish

  1. Combine all ingredients over ice.
  2. Shake and strain into a martini glass.
  3. Serve up and enjoy.
