Eau de Rose Martini

Roses and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand and I think the only thing sweeter than the smell of a dozen beautiful blooms is a glass full of them! Rose may not be a familiar flavor to some but why not be a little adventurous this Valentine’s Day and serve your sweetie a romantical rose cocktail? My “Eau de Rose” (rose water) martini is the perfect special treat!

Note: You can use any good quality gin here but I’m partial to Hendricks as rose is a primary flavor in it so it works beautifully here! Cheers!
