Catch the Bouquet Cocktail Recipe
Staff Writer

A pink drink is a classic go-to for a bridal shower. This recipe in particular is easy to shake up and tastes delicious. The addition of the rose water and lemon juice add a nice touch to the simple syrup and vodka, creating a refreshing balance between bitter and sweet. It may not be as good as catching the real bouquet when wedding day comes along, but it certainly will make your guests feel good.

Ingredients

  • ½ ounce premium vodka
  • Splash simple syrup
  • Splash freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 ounce rose water
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Fresh rose petals, for garnish

Directions

 Shake the ingredients together in a shaker over ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with rose petals.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
