Rose Quartz | Cocktail Party

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.
