Strawberry Honey Rose Cocktail
Makes one drink
2-3 Organic strawberries
1 tsp honey
1/2 oz of Elisir di Rose by Santa Maria Novella (can omit)
1 oz Lillet Rosé
1 oz Gin
Sparkling Water (can omit)
Mint, Lemon Verbena, Tarragon, Basil, or other fragrant leafy green herb
Method: Chop strawberries and add honey along with Elisir di Rose (if using) with a squeeze of lemon. Let sit until softened.
Once softened, smush the strawberries with the back of a spoon or other utensil, we recommend our Honey Dipper. Leave a little chunky for texture.
Add Gin and Lillet Rosé to strawberry mixture and stir with ice.
Pour into Acqua e Vino Red Tumbler. Add sparkling water and more ice if desired.
Garnish with lemon peel and your favorite leafy herb. Tip: Give the herb a smack between your palms to release its scent and flavor.
