Chandelier’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ drink changes color

The presentation of this “Alice in Wonderland”-themed drink, the We’re All Mad Here cocktail, from The Chandelier at The Cosmopolitan is nearly as impressive as the flavor combination of lychee, elderflower and gin with hints of butterfly pea tea. If you don’t have time to infuse fruit with a Szechuan “buzz button” flower (available online), the effect with just the flower will still be stunning, literally.
