Rose Liquor Cocktail

July 23rd, 2012 § 12 comments

This year the roses in my parent’s Oregon garden were absolutely stunning.

Hundreds of pink blooms filled the yard, and after enjoying the view every day I finally decided to try and make them last.

So before the last petals fell, I picked a few dozen roses, cleaned and rinsed them, and then infused them with vodka and sugar to make a sweet liquor.

I simply filled a mason jar with as many rinsed petals as I could fit, then topped them off with vodka.

A few hours later, I strained the vodka, and added a cup of sugar and a few drops of red coloring to give the liquid a pink hue.

After a week or so, the sugar had dissolved, leaving a fragrant, syrupy rose liquor in its wake.

Then, I chilled the rose liquor and topped it with sparkling water and a single rose petal to create a refreshing, sweet cocktail in a matter of moments.

And there I had it – spring, immortalized in a glass!
