Cocktails & Characters: Jocelyn Fairchild-Morgenstern from ‘The Mortal Instruments’

Jocelyn Fairchild-Morgenstern, also Jocelyn Fray, is the Snow White of Cassandra Clare’s original Mortal Instruments trilogy. After meeting this loving, yet overprotective mother to Clary Fray in the first few chapters of City of Bones, Jocelyn spends the better part of the trilogy in a deep sleep. She’s awakened by Magnus Bane, not true love’s first kiss, but her love, Luke, is ready and waiting for her when her eyes open and that’s close enough for me.

In Jocelyn’s honor, I’ve concocted a Snow White Martini.

Snow White Martini


3 oz. vodka
1 oz. white cranberry juice
1/2 oz. Cointreau liqueur
splash lime juice

Mix ingredients in a shaker, shake well, and serve in a martini glass.

You end up with a very pretty white drink that is really a Cosmopolitan with a different colored juice. It was delicious and a fun twist on a classic.
