Cardamom Rose Cocktail #BrunchWeek #Sponsor

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples 
from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Here we are at day five of an amazing week of recipes to inspire your brunch menus from appetizers to libations.

Many, many thanks to Terri of Love and Confections and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures for coordinating, wrangling, managing, and inspiring all of us!

You can go to this post to read more about the sponsors, the prizes, and to enter the giveaway!

This recipe includes ingredients from a couple of our event sponsors: Dixie Crystals and Nielsen-Massey. So grateful for the inspiration! But, you can use whatever sugar and rose water you have on-hand.




Cardamom Rose Cocktail

Ingredients makes one

Cocktail
  • 1.5 oz gin
  • .75 oz rose simple syrup*
  • .25 oz freshly squeezed blood orange juice
  • .75 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • organic roses for garnish


*Rose Simple Syrup
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar (I used Dixie Crystals)
  • 1/2 C cold water
  • organic rose petals
  • 1/8 t rose water (I used Nielsen-Massey)
Procedure

Rose Simple Syrup
Place all ingredients in a lidded mason jar. Cover with lid and shake until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let stand overnight. Strain out the petals and keep syrup in the refrigerator. The syrup should keep for two to three weeks if kept refrigerated.


Cocktail
Muddle cardamom pods at the bottom of shaker. Muddle lightly or you will overpower the cocktail. Add the rest of the ingredients and shake. Strain and garnish with rose petals or fresh blood orange wedge. Cheers!
