- 1/2 cup, plus 1 tbsp (divided) C&H® Granulated Sugar Easy Baking Tub
- 3/4 cup Water
- 2 tbsp, plus 1 tsp (divided) Edible Dried Roses
- 1/4 cup Raspberries
- 4 oz Vodka
- 2 oz Lemon Juice
- Optional Lemon slices and dried roses for garnish
Make the Raspberry Rose Syrup: Add 1/2 cup C&H® Granulated Sugar Easy Baking Tub, water and 2 tbsps dried roses to a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar has dissolved, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely. Strain into an airtight container.
Prepare 2 cocktail glasses with a sugar and rose rim by combining 1 tablespoon C&H® Granulated Sugar Easy Baking Tub and 1 teaspoon of chopped dried rose petals in a shallow dish. Coat the rims of the glasses with a lemon slice and dip into the sugar and rose mixture, until coated.
In a cocktail shaker, add vodka, lemon juice, 1 1/2 oz of Raspberry Rose Syrup and ice. Shake vigorously until the outside of the cocktail shaker is chilled. Strain into prepared cocktail glasses. If desired, garnish with lemon slices and dried roses.
- This recipe would also work well with gin instead of vodka.
- Store any extra Raspberry Rose Syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
