Pink Cocktails

Special Mother’s Day Libations

 

Thank’s to Martin Miller’s Gin, we were able to “whip up” two pink cocktails in time for Mother’s Day. They use two sure-to-please-Mom ingredients, strawberries and roses.

Strawberry Martini

 

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 shots gin

  • 1/2 shot strawberry liqueur (look for Volare Wild Strawberry Liqueur)

  • Fresh strawberry and lemon twist for garnish

Directions

  1. Add ingredients to a mixing glass full of ice, stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

  2. Garnish with a lemon twist and a strawberry.

Rose Petal Martini

  • 1-1/2 shots gin

  • 1/2 cup lychee juice

  • Rose petal for garnish

Simple Syrup Recipe

While powdered sugar is the original ingredient, it is no longer used in most situations because simple syrup dissolves more readily in a cold beverage. You can make simple syrup easily and keep it on hand:

  • Using the proportion of 2 parts sugar to three parts water, fill a bottle almost halfway with sugar; add hot water.
  • Cover the top and shake well.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.

You also can find guarapo, sugar cane syrup, in Latin markets. Natural food stores also carry organic cane syrup.
