Despite the dainty name and hue, this cocktail packs a burst of flavour like any classic.

Zesty, yet fresh with subtle mint and lingering Spice flavours, it is a perfect aperitif drink to open the palate.



60ml Seedlip Spice 94

10ml Rose Syrup

15ml Grapefruit Cordial (I used Bickford’s Pink Grapefruit Cordial)

30ml Grapefruit Juice

6-8 Mint Leaves



Measure all ingredients and add into a shaker.

Fill shaker ¾ with ice.

Close shaker and shake vigorously.

Double Strain into a chilled martini or coupe glass.

(Strain through a fine strainer to catch any mint leaf debris).

Garnish with a Rose petal or alternatively a mint leaf.
