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:
- 40ml Van Wees Amsterdamsche Old Genever
- 15ml Van Wees Roses Without Thorns liqueur
- 20ml Rosé port wine
- 2 Drops Ferdinand’s Winerose and Lavender bitters
- A couple of sprays of gerenaium rose
- Vetiver tincture
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!
