What Is Pink Gin?
Infused with strawberry, pink gin boasts a lovely pink color and is much sweeter and fruiter than the basic gin.
It originated as a seasickness ailment for the British Royal Navy. You can mix up a lot of other fun and pretty drinks with it like a Pink Gin Spritz.
How to Make the Honey and Rose Simple Syrup
Simple syrup is essentially a form of liquid sugar that can be used for sweetening cocktails or any kind of drinks and to sweeten and moisten cakes.
Of course, it is possible to buy ready-made.
But since it’s one of the most affordable and easy to make ingredients, it makes perfect sense to make it at home.
Ingredients needed for the Honey and Rose Simple Syrup:
— 1 cup honey
— 3/4 cup water
— 1/4 cup rose water
— Dried rosebuds (organic and food-grade)
How to Make the Honey and Rose Syrup
1 — In a small bowl, heat the honey on low in the microwave for 10 seconds (or until it becomes runnier).
Depending on the temperature of your kitchen, honey can be crystalized and more difficult to dissolve in water.
2 — In a small saucepan, stir the heated honey, water, rose water, and dried rosebuds and stir until completely dissolved.
3 — Once the mixture thickens and the color starts turning red, stop the cooking process and let it sit for a couple of minutes.
4 — Strain and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
When making this simple syrup, you can omit the rose water. However, the rose water enhances the rose aromas and flavors.
Because the simply syrup needs to be chilled when making the cocktail, we recommend making it in advance.
How to Make a Rose Martini
1 — Chill the martini glass in the freezer for at least 15-20 minutes.
2 — Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, vodka, pink gin, peach schnapps, orange bitters, rosewater, and honey and rose simple syrup.
3 — Close tight and shake vigorously for about 1 minute.
4 — Take the glass from the freezer and strain and pour the cocktail.
5 — Garnish with a slice of strawberry and a rose petal.
You can make the strawberry slice sit on the brim of the glass by making a tiny sloth on the side of it.
