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.

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.
