This elegant cocktail is named for the Mirror of Galadriel, a silver basin of water that gave Frodo (and Sam in the books) visions of “things that were, things that are, and some things that have not yet come to pass.” It combines the graceful effervescence of prosecco with the fierceness of Svedka Grapefruit Jalapeño Vodka and the sweetness of orange liqueur. A bright bite of lime honors the Lady of Light, and torched thyme represents the forest of Lothlórien, the realm she rules. Much like what would happen if Galadriel accepted the One Ring, all shall love this drink and despair.
Tools & Supplies
Nick and Nora glass or wine glass
mixing glass, bar spoon, and strainer
In an ice-filled mixing glass, combine vodka, orange liqueur, lime juice (I also threw the lime wedge in), and 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. Stir until well chilled.
Take another thyme sprig and use a lighter to singe it. Blow out any lingering flames and place the torched thyme in a Nick and Nora or wine glass. Strain the drink into the glass and top with prosecco.
