friday at five :: cardamom rose

This delightful beverage was concocted by Kristina and Alissa of Design Sponge. We’re loving their “Behind the Bar” articles. This one from Apothecary in Philly.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz of Hendrick’s gin (this is a rose & cucumber infused gin)
  • .75 oz of Rose syrup (make at home with rose water and simple syrup or buy locally)
  • .25 oz of Fresh lemon juice
  • .75 oz of Fresh grapefruit juice (ruby red preferably)
  • 2 dashes of Peychauds bitters (Peychaud is credited with first creating the cocktail)
  • 1 Cardamom Pod

Methodology:
1) Lightly muddle 1 cardamom pod at the bottom of shaker (not too much muddling or it will overpower the drink)
2) Add the rest of the ingredients
3) Add ice
4) Shake for 20 seconds
5) Strain over fresh ice to remove the cardamom pod
6) Add a splash of seltzer water
7) Garnish with rose petals or fresh lemon wedge (use organic if possible)
