Rose Drop Cocktail

A cocktail with the dreamy fragrance and color of roses? All made with roses from the garden? This is one gorgeous cocktail that looks as beautiful as it tastes. I found this rose infused cocktail recipe in one of last year’s Sunset Magazine’s western edition but couldn’t make the cocktail then as by the time I read the recipe my roses were winding down for the season, however I did save it to make this year when my roses are in full bloom again.  Rose Drop from recipemuse.wordpress.com.

I tell you folks, it is amazing how the fragrance of roses comes through in this cocktail! For this cocktail to work fragrant pink roses have to be used, and what is more fragrant than old-fashioned style David Austin English Roses? That’s what I used in my rose cocktail – a combination of light pink and dark pink fragrant David Austin English roses. The end result is something positively ethereal. A lovely rose colored cocktail with the fragrance of roses in every sip 🌹🍷.

If you know me by now, you know that I am all about easy recipes, and this one can’t get any easier for a beautiful rosy cocktail.  Just pick the most fragrant organic pink roses and drown them in vodka.  Let it steep for a couple of hours, then add lemon juice and simple syrup to make your rose cocktail 🌹🍷.   Give this easy eclectic cocktail recipe a try!

Strain and store in bottle

Once stored in the refrigerator the color of the rose vodka will change to a dark brown. However when lemon juice is added the liquid turns into a beautiful pink color! It’s the lemon juice that brings out that dreamy mauve color in the cocktail.
