Rose Royale

Rose Royale cocktail with crème de cassis, sparkling wine, and rose water

The Rose Royale is an elegant take on the Kir Royale, from food photographer Gintare Marcel. All it takes is a few drops of rosewater to dress up an old standby and make it feel fresh and new.

The magic is in the technique: adding the rosewater to the surface of the drink (rather than mixing it with the crème de cassis) allows its fragrance to be lifted up on the carbonation from the sparkling wine, creating a bouquet of rose aroma as the drink is sipped.

Marcel’s original recipe calls for Prosecco, a dry-ish white sparkling wine. You can use any sparkling wine you like – in fact, we even prefer it with sparkling rosé wine, if only to build up the theme.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
