RECIPE: BLUSHED MARTINEZ COCKTAIL

A last month we shared this delicious bontanical summer cocktail recipe created by Drinks Fusion, and now the sun is here to stay (for a week at least!) I thought it was high time we shared another delicious (and utterly beautiful) recipe for you to enjoy at your next summer gathering!

A summer fusion of Van Wees Amsterdamsche Old Genever (an old Dutch gin) and Roses Without Thorns liqueur made from rare rose petals, stirred over ice with a splash of rosé port wine and seasoned with winerose and lavender bitters, scented with gerenaium rose and vetiver this makes an impressively pretty drink!

YOU WILL NEED:

METHOD:

Pour all ingredients in to a mixing glass filled with large dry ice cubes, stir for about 45-60 seconds.

Strain the liquid off the ice using a Biloxi Julep strainer into a chilled champagne coupe or martini glass.

Spray gerenaium rose and vetiver tincture over the drink using an atomizer

This would be the perfect accompaniment to some of the recipes in the Herb & Flower Cookbook Catharine reviewed earlier this month too!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
