This recipe from Vikram Vij’s restaurant My Shanti in South Surrey is delicate and sophisticated with the subtle taste of almonds and saffron. It is also beautiful, thanks to its silver leaf garnish.
• 1 oz vodka
• 0.75 oz saffron simple syrup (see note)
• Pinch of cardamom powder
• 1 to 2 oz chilled almond milk
• Garnish: Silver leaf, crushed pistachios
