ROSE INFUSED CHERRY GIN FIZZ

My Rose Infused Cherry Gin Fizz is a feminine, fruity and lightly floral cocktail combines Eau Claire’s stunning Cherry Gin with my favourite Prosecco, a splash of fresh lemon juice and a Rose & Pink Peppercorn Infused Honey Simple Syrup for a contemporary spin on the classic French 75. It makes a beautiful addition to your Valentine’s Day menu, but can be enjoyed anytime you want to indulge in a gourmet craft cocktail at home! As always, it’s free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar — and bursting with fruity flavours, floral undertones, unique botanicals and a refreshing effervescence.

Ingredients

FOR THE ROSE INFUSED CHERRY GIN FIZZ

  • 1 oz Eau Claire Distillery Cherry Gin
  • 2 oz Lamarca Prosecco
  • 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Rose & Pink Peppercorn Infused Honey Simple Syrup recipe to follow
  • Splash of fruity Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Optional Garnish

  • Pink peppercorns
  • Dried culinary rose petals

FOR THE ROSE & PINK PEPPERCORN INFUSED HONEY SIMPLE SYRUP

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp dried culinary rose petals
  • 1 tbsp pink peppercorns

Instructions

  1. Chill your coupe glass.


  2. Start by making your Rose & Pink Peppercorn Infused Honey Simple Syrup. In a saucepan over medium / high heat, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup honey. Add dried rose retals and pink peppercorns. Stir boiling mixture constantly for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

  3. Pour Rose & Pink Peppercorn Infused Honey Simple Syrup over a fine mesh strainer with a large bowl underneath. Discard petals and peppercorns. Add simple syrup to an airtight container — it will keep refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.

  4. Begin preparing your Rose Infused Cherry Gin Fizz by adding 1 oz of Eau Claire Cherry Gin to your chilled coupe glass.
  5. Add 2 oz of Prosecco to the glass.
  6. Add 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  7. Add 1/2 oz of Rose & Pink Peppercorn Infused Honey Simple Syrup.
  8. Add a drop of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your cocktail. I know it sounds crazy — but the richness of the oil helps to cut some of the acidity in the cocktail and also provides a delightful, velvety texture!
  9. Stir to combine.
  10. Garnish with culinary rose petals and / or pink peppercorns and enjoy immediately!
