Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz cocktail with gin, rose syrup, lemon juice, Peychaud's bitters, and sparkling wine

Rose and sparkling wine are natural partners – elegant, beautiful, and refined. The Rose Quartz from Lydia Reissmueller at Tender in Portland capitalizes on all these qualities, for a drink that’s lovely to behold and delightful to sip.

This is a great place to use a floral-forward gin, like Hendrick’s. The original Rose Quartz recipe called for Argyle Brut, a sparkling white wine – but we’ve found it just as nice with a dry sparkling rosé.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except for the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a cocktail flute or coupe and top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a lemon twist, or go super-fancy with a bundle of rose petals clipped to the edge of the glass.

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.
