Pour ceux qui rêvent de mimosas en fleur....... The Stardust

Here in the icy clutches of January's wrath,
my mind is in the gentle embrace of golden dreams.
Flowers in bloom, fragrance in the air 
Une Delice de Reves
the golden ingredients melting the chill

1.5 Vodka
1 St. Germain Liqueur 
the juice of 1/2 lemon
a drop or two of Peychaud's Bitters
Shaken together over the remnants of winter
But before pouring the liquid into a glass,
a spray of Orange Blossom Water into the glass.
The Stardust
And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by  
Words by Mitchell Parish
