A few months back I posted about a classic cocktail from the early 1900’s. It is one of the first cocktails that was invented in America called the French 75. It’s a delicious lemony champagne and gin cocktail, and if you haven’t tried it, I highly encourage you to! The French Rose 75 borrows the gin and champagne, but substitutes rose water for the lemon. Rose water is the most divine thing I’ve tried in a long time. The fragrance is heady and powerful, but the flavor is subtle and earthy. Love! Makes one.
- 1 sugar cube
- 1/8 t. rose water
- 1 oz. floral-forward gin like Hendricks
- 2 oz. cold champagne, prosecco, or cava
- rose petal garnish
In a champagne flute drop in the sugar cube and pour the rose water over it. Add the gin and swirl to dissolve the sugar a bit. Top with champagne and garnish with a rose petal.
