Bartender Kaiko Tulloch riffs on the Champagne cocktail with a more floral and herbal version at Lucky Liquor Co. in Edinburgh. The name for the dangerously delicious drink comes from a customer who claimed she would lose her shoes if she had a couple more.

Ingredients

For the hibiscus vodka:

  • 12 oz. hibiscus tea
  • 1 bottle vodka

For the cocktail:

  • 12 oz. hibiscus vodka
  • 12 oz. rose liqueur
  • 14 oz. yellow Chartreuse
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Champagne, preferably Cremante de Bourgogne Blanc de Blancs
  • Grapefruit peel, to garnish

Instructions

Step 1

Make the hibiscus vodka: Pour the vodka into a large bowl, then stir in the tea and let steep for 2 hours. Pour the vodka through a fine strainer back into the bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.

Step 2

Make the cocktail: In a chilled champagne flute, stir the hibiscus vodka with the rose liqueur, chartreuse, and sugar cube. Top with Champagne and twist grapefruit peel over the top before serving.
