The Fleur Savage by Zoe Bradley

Cocktail of the Week: This fragrant floral concoction is almost too pretty to drink.

By Samantha Coles

Zoe Bradley is an award-winning artist who creates astoundingly intricate sculptures from paper. Creating the sculptures by hand, Zoe specializes in floral-inspired showpieces and has worked with a number of big names — Alexander McQueen, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Michiko Koshino and Mont Blanc to name a few. 

Recently, Zoe teamed up with fellow multimedia artist Jameel Mohammed and St-Germain liqueur to celebrate the brand’s second ‘Fleuruiste’ pop-up event in Manhattan, New York. Last year’s Fleuriste event was a celebration of fresh florals.

But this year, due to a global flower shortage, the event was a reimagination of a flower shop with Zoe’s enchanting paper displays that “brought the joy of flowers to people in a new way.”

The event saw cocktail demonstrations, live performances, and a paper Dahlia workshop where guests created a boutonniere from seed paper. 

It was at this event that Zoe created her signature cocktail, the Fleur Savage. Zoe’s tipple of choice is a Lychee martini; the Fleur Savage is a bright berried and fragrant twist on her favorite drink. The pretty concoction was garnished with an edible paper petal and matcha laced stem.

If that sounds a little too intricate for your after-work beverage then fear not — this simplified recipe still hits the spot. It features Bramble Bombay Gin and the famed French St-Germain, an elderflower based liquor.
