Bohemian Rose Flip
I made this drink for my girlfriends and it was a sure hit. Make this for your next girls night!
Recipe (Makes 1):
2 oz London dry gin
1½ oz strained fresh pink grapefruit juice
1 oz rose syrup
1 egg white
2 drops Peychaud’s bitters
Rose petals to garnish
Rose Syrup Recipe:
½ cup water
½ cup sugar
2 cups rose petals (lightly packed)
1 drop pink food colouring (optional)
Combine water and sugar in a small pot over medium heat. Bring almost to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add rose petals, stirring to incorporate all the petals. Set aside for 45 minutes to infuse. Strain into a clean jar. Discard petals. Add drop of food colour, if desired. Yields about ⅔ cup (150 mL) rose syrup. Will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
Combine gin, pink grapefruit juice, rose syrup and egg white in a cocktail shaker and shake until egg white is foamy. Add ice and shake until well chilled. Strain into a coupe glass, add 2 drops of bitters to the top of the foam and garnish with rose petals.
