How do you make a romantic drink for V-day that's not totally pink or otherwise the cheesiest thing around? You throw some rosewater in a shaker with some booze and call it a day. This drink is STRONG and YUMMY and sure to get the love vibes going if you catch my super-not-subtle drift.
Ingredients (makes one drink)
3 tbsp turbinado sugar
1 tsp ground cardamom
2 oz gin (we used The Botanist)
1/2 oz St Germain elderflower liqueur
1 tsp rosewater
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Combine sugar and cardamom in a shallow dish. Dip the rim of your glass in water and then immediately into the sugar mixture.
Pour gin, St. Germain, rosewater, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with LOTS of ice. Shake it like a shakeweight until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Pour into prepared glass.
Disclaimer: This drink is basically straight gin with some yummy floral stuff and lemon. It tastes GOOD and you will not realize you are DRUNK until you are DRUNK. Sip with caution, minxies.
