Hello everyone! I hope you are doing very well. So am I, thanks for asking. But I have a very serious question for you. Is it even appropriate to share this Rose Martini Cocktail on Tuesday morning? Indeed, can I even consider myself a decent person if I am dreaming of this cocktail right now? Well, in my excuse, I am writhing this post on Monday night, so that’s totally legit haha.

Instagram Food Challenge

Before we talk about this stunning cocktail, I have something great to share with you. So I hope you haven’t jumped right away to the recipe (Although I won’t judge you if you are jumping and excited to make it right away!) Anisa (Instagram The Wonky Stove ), huge public HautesCuisines , and I (Instagram Havoc In The Kitchen ) haven joined together to have some (And I totally mean A LOT) of fun with an Instagram food challenge. This challenge is about Dessert Drinks, and it could be everything from a milkshake or lemonade to a fancy cocktail or mocktail.

“Drinks More Sweets” #DrinkMoreSweets

In a nutshell, it will be happening July 19-25, and you will need to use hashtag #drinkmoresweets. I will add a poster in my next blog post, or you can check our accounts for more detail. This challenge isn’t about prizes (However, the winners and runners-up will be featured by HautesCuisines). That’s about your creativity. Maybe you can almost literally transform a famous dessert like tiramisu to a drinkable form? I’ve already come up with something I will be sharing with you. And the most importantly, in the times when Instagram is ‘no longer a photo-sharing app,’ (Isn’t that sad? I am totally for diversity, but I don’t like the idea of basically punishing those people who opt out creating reels), we also want to appreciate the photograph.

I hope you will join this challenge – I know many fellow bloggers enjoy both drinks and desserts, so why not combine these things together?

Rose Martini Cocktail

Anyway, let’s back to this Rose Martini Cocktail. It’s truly delightful! Yes it is quite sweet and with a distinctive botanical flavour, but it does not taste like soap at all. Even Andrew who prefers stronger cocktails with no ice, did like this. (Well he might or might not have tripled the amount of martini for his version!) You will need this rose syrup or even this rose petal jam (There’s still enough of the syrup in the jam). I urge you to collect rose petals and turn them into a jam / syrup ASAP, because you we will need it in July a lot (And the roses are starting to fade now!) Don’t have roses around? Just make simple sugar syrup and infuse it with a few drops of rose water then!

Dessert Cocktail

This is a dessert kind of cocktail, as I mentioned making it a lovely choice for your Saturday afternoon :) Definitely you can play with the amount of syrup as well as with lime juice, for a tarter result. You can use either dry Martini Vermouth or Martini Rosso. Personally, I love the first one in this cocktail as it’s not so sweet. Besides, Martini Rosso already has a pleasantly strong, somewhat botanical aroma, and the rose flavour gets a bit lost here. But I won’t stop you from making both versions to decide yourself! Let me know which one you liked the best. Also, you can improvise by mixing martini with stronger liquors such as gin or rum, for a bolder result.

I hope you like this Rose Martini Cocktail, and you will give this idea a try. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram   message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen. And I hope you join this Instagram food challenge!

Cheers!

This Rose Martini Cocktail is a light, luscious, delicately sweet, and refreshing cocktail with a delicate rose aroma. You can make it with either dry Martini Vermouth or Martini Rosso. The cooking time does not include the time for making the syrup.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 oz. extra dry Martini Vermouth or Martini Rosso – see notes

  • 1 oz. (or to taste) of rose syrup or jam (liquid only) – see notes

  • juice of 1 lime, or to taste

  • 1/2 cup of ice, crushed (optional)

Directions

  • In a shaker, combine the rose syrup, martini, lime juice, and ice. Shake about 30 seconds to combine. Try and adjust to your liking by adding more of martini, syrup, or lime. Enjoy right away!

Notes

  • You can use either dry Martini Vermouth or Martini Rosso. Personally, I love the first one in this cocktail as it’s not so sweet. Besides, Martini Rosso already has a pleasantly strong, somewhat botanical aroma that interferes with the rose flavour.
  • If you don’t have rose petals on hands, you can make simple sugar syrup infused with a few drops of rose water.
  • Of course, ice is optional. You can simply chill the ingredients prior using. Or make rose-infused ice cubes for a stunning presentation and even more flavour!

    I’ve been enjoying all of your recent rose recipes. The crepes especially! They are all so beautifully presented with that gorgeous color. I look forward to checking out the dessert drink challenge, too. And what beautiful accounts to collaborate with. Love them both. I don’t make many drinks — however, I love trying them! ;-) ~Valentina

    Did I read Martini? I’m all in! It’s my favourite cocktail, although I mostly drink the dry, vodka kind. This one is so pretty, it would be difficult to refuse. All right, twist my arm, I’ll take one…

    What an interesting cocktail,, Ben! Perfect for dessert, for sure! And such a vibrant color, I love a beautiful cocktail, too! Not sure I’ve ever had anything with rose flavor or rose syrup, I’d be interested to try it for sure!
