Because if you are going to bring me red roses and champagne for Valentine’s Day, they better be in a cocktail. Just sayin’.
This lovely libation could not be easier to make.
- 1 tablespoon rose water
- 1 tablespoon old fashioned grenadine syrup (such as the syrup from these)
- a dry, sparkling wine–the pinker the better (we use this)
To make one glass, add the rose water and grenadine syrup to the bottom of a champagne flute or coupe. Top the glass off with sparkling wine.
If you want to be extra fancy, you can make a rose stir stick by cutting the stem off of a miniature rose blossom and inserting a toothpick into the base:
Add a small dab of hot glue to the non-flower end of the toothpick, and slide the toothpick into a small cocktail straw.
Almost too pretty to drink. Almost.
