Roseblood – A Cocktail

 

 

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.” – Mark Overby

Roseblood

 

I am deeply, madly, passionately in love with and swooning from my own latest creation.

 

Roseblood

Blood Orange, Spirit of the Hudson Vodka, Royal Rose "Rose" Syrup, Sparkling White Wine

 

For 1 cocktail:

 

The juice of 1 small blood orange

1.5 oz Tuthilltown Spirit of the Hudson Vodka

1/2 – 1 oz Royal Rose “Rose” Syrup

Shake over ice

Strain into chilled martini glass

Top off with champagne or dry sparkling wine of your choice

Garnish with a rose petal and/or a twist of blood orange

 

 

 

Now, just whisper into your lover’s ear and enjoy.

 

 

 

Enjoy a variation?

Try a Roseblood 75

Substitute St. George Spirits “Botanivore” Gin for the Vodka

OR if you want it a little less sweet (and it isn’t too sweet this way) use culinary rosewater instead of the rose syrup.

    What a yummy looking cocktail, and the vodka — I want, I want!
