OK so my plan was to share this recipe with you this upcoming Friday, but I really couldn’t wait!!! These pomegranate and rose water gin fizz cocktails are just too pretty and delicious to NOT share with you right now. They’re sweet, fragrant, fizzy and really, dangerously, easy to drink. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
- 1.5 oz gin
- 1 oz rose water simple syrup *(see notes at the end of the recipe)
- 1 egg white
- ice cubes
- 2 drops rose water
- 1 oz pomegranate juice
- club soda
- dried rose petal powder*
- To make the cocktail, place the gin, simple syrup and egg white in a martini shaker. Shake vigorously until the egg white becomes frothy. Place a handful of ice cubes in the shaker and continue to shake until the liquid is chilled. Place 2 drops of rose water in the glass and then the pomegranate juice. Strain the mixture into the glass and top with club soda. Sprinkle rose petal powder over top and serve.
- To make the rose water simple syrup, add ½ cup granulated sugar and ½ cup water into a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat until it's dissolved (approx. 2 minutes). Add 1 tsp of rose water and set aside to cool until ready to use
- In a spice grinder, add in 1 tbsp of dried rose petals and grind until a fine powder forms. Use to top over drinks or tea for a fragrant addition.
