If you’re in Miami Beach, a visit to the newly opened Lobster Bar Sea Grille is a must. Not only do they offer lots of dishes with (duh) lobster, but the cocktails are just as delicious as the food. Case in point: the Morpheus Martini, made with gin, St Germain elderflower liqueur, lavender petals and an edible hibiscus flower.
Concocted by Buckhead Life mixologist Andrej Pop, he created the Morpheus Martini, named for the Greek god of dreams, with the flavors of the Mediterranean seaside – where he is from – in mind.
“The lavender scent has a very happy association for me – it reminds me of home and I wanted to capture the scent, the essence of the ocean waves and the warm sunshine,” explains Pop. “I used gin because of its botanical properties which complement the lavender, added lemon because it’s very common in Meditteranean cuisine and because it works well with gin and finished with the sour mix to help smooth the sharpness of the gin and blend all the ingredients together.”
