Rose Martini Cocktail Recipe

Martinis like this one go well with lighter gins such as Hendrick’s or Aviation though it’s also quite delicious with dry gins. Infusing rose syrup in gin is a simple and tasty way to add rose flavor to this spirit. In addition to buying it, rose water can be used to make rose syrup at home. A bottle of this syrup is a handy way to add a floral touch to any drink that calls for plain simple syrup in the future.

By combining rose with a martini, you can add delicate floral notes and enhance the experience. The cocktail was inspired by fragrant summer gardens in full bloom and it’s perfect for an outdoor party or barbecue. Rose water (which is available as a liquid and can also be purchased) is important whether you are making syrup or garnishing the cocktail since they should not have been sprayed with poisonous pesticides or fertilizers. You need to make sure your roses are safe to eat.


  • The grapefruit bitters provide a nice compliment though alternative bitters such as orange bitters work as well.
  • If you would prefer, you can also make a rose-flavored vodka martini.
  • If you want a clean vodka taste, be sure to choose a top-quality vodka.
