Rose Petal Martini
Our Rose Petal Martini is an original recipe from our Kocktail curator Neil Donachie, previously senior bartender at the world famous Savoy Hotel.
Roses have long since been associated with love. Greek mythology proffers that the first red rose grew on the ground, in exactly the spot where the tears of Aphrodite, the goddess of love fell, upon the death of her beloved Adonis.
Whilst we’re not suggesting we’ve directly bottled Aphrodite’s tears, we like to think our Rose Petal Martini, made with stunning ingredients including the beautiful French aperitif Lillet Rose, Bologna’s amazing Amaro Montenegro and Northumberland’s stunning Hepple Gin may just be about the closest equivalent to a love potion you will find.
- 50ml lillet rose
- 10ml amaro Montenegro
- 10ml strawberry and cucumber syrup
- 10ml Hepple Gin
- Orange bitters
Pour all ingredients into a coupé glass and stir
Garnish with a rosebud
