Get an Early Taste of Summer With Esacda


Before the big blizzard this week, we got a sneak preview of summer thanks to Escada. We said goodbye to the Big Apple to say hello to Turks & Caicos – the source of inspiration for the brand’s latest limited edition fragrance, Turquoise Summer. During an immersion dinner, we were able to truly taste the notes pulled for the scent, including an incredible cocktail infused with raspberries (a key note in the scent) that we plan to recreate for any upcoming soirees once the city finally thaws out. In the meantime, you can shake up this spirit and let it provide a sweet summer escape.

Turquoise Summer

¼ oz. Raspebery Stoli
¼ oz. Pomegranate Juice
½ oz. Cointreau
½ oz. Mango Juice
1 oz. Stoli Vodka
½ oz. Curaçao

Begin by pouring raspberry Stoli and pomegranate juice into a martini glass. Add the Cointreau, mango juice, and lime to a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake and strain over a bar spoon into the martini glass to allow the layer to float over the pomegranate juice mixture. Then, combine the Curaçao and vodka in a cocktail shaker over ice before shaking and straining over the mango juice using a bar spoon to avoid mixing.
