Raspberry Rose Fizz

Raspberry Rose Fizz with raspberry liqueur and rose water

Todd Wagner, drink editor for the website HonestlyYum, created this gorgeous treat to honor his rose-loving mother on Mother’s Day. Ah, what a good kid.

Like all drinks containing egg white, you should “dry shake” – that is, shake the ingredients without ice – for a good 15-30 seconds before adding ice and shaking again. Since egg white is so viscous, dry shaking gives it enough time to get thoroughly incorporated before shaking with ice; otherwise, you’d have to shake it so much you’d water down the drink more than you need.

Ingredients

Instructions

Dry shake all the ingredients (except the sparkling water) for 15-30 seconds, and then add ice and shake again.

Add the sparkling water first to an ice-filled tall glass, and then strain the rest of the ingredients from the shaker into the glass (that way, you won’t have to stir the drink to incorporate the sparkling water).

Garnish with a rose petal, serve to your mother, and rest on your laurels until her birthday comes around.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
