Aaron Rosand... A lot has changed since then!Hard to believe the last time I saw Ida Kavafian was about three weeks ago at the Curtis Institute, for a memorial for my teacher
When thinking of who to ask for Fiddler’s Favorites, I could not come up with a more perfect person than Ida. She's a beloved teacher to many -- a faculty member at the Curtis Institute (who also taught at The Juilliard School and Bard College Conservatory of Music); and she has performed everywhere: as a soloist, with her sister Ani Kavafian, and with jazz artists such as Chick Corea and Wynton Marsalis.
She's not only one of my "Favorite Fiddlers" in the entire world, but she's also simply a fabulous and fun person. Leave it to Ida and her furry friends to kick off a weekend with her special "Cosmo" recipe. CHEERS!
Ida doesn't use measurements, but here are the incredients with the approximate amounts:
- 1/2 ounce Pom pomegranate cherry juice
- 3/4 of an ounce Nellie and Joe's Key West Lime juice
- 2 ounces Cointreau
- 3 ounces Luksusowa Vodka
