A Rose By Any Other Name

A Rose By Any Other Name cocktail with mint, Metaxa brandy, grapefruit juice, honey syrup, and rose water

A Rose By Any Other Name took second place in Imbibe magazine’s Metaxa Cocktail Competition in 2009. Invented by mixologist Lara Creasy in Atlanta, it features Metaxa, a Greek brandy flavored with rose petals and other botanicals.

Despite its origins, A Rose By Any Other Name is quite delicious with just about any type of brandy you can get your hands on. Resist the urge to increase the rose water; with or without Metaxa, it’s perfect as-is and even one more drop could take the drink from sophisticated to soapy in a heartbeat.
