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.
