3 Rosé Water Cocktails You Didn’t Know You Were Missing

Restaurants and bars are making a comeback, folks! In an effort to support our on-premise friends (and selfishly generate some delicious cocktails from the professionals themselves), we ran a Cocktail Challenge – with one simple stipulation. Rosé Water must be the primary ingredient. Take a look at our top three contenders below.

#1. Oh Roseanna!
By: Jimmy Smith @1900lounge

Rosé Water Cocktail | Pink-ish coloring, garnished with mint leaves

Rationale behind the name:
The name is coined from two factors; (1) the utilization of Rosé Water and, (2) the western song by Stephen Foster “Oh Susanna!” – one of the top American western songs of all time.

Recipe:
A cocktail beverage that accentuates Rose Water with a crisp, smooth and fresh summer harvest featuring watermelon, mint and hibiscus
4 oz. Rosé Water
1 oz. Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
2 oz. Freshly strained watermelon juice
4 Mint leaves
1 Egg white
3 Drops of hibiscus shrub

Directions:
(1) Mix Rosé Water, Domaine de Canton, watermelon juice, 3 mint leaves and egg white into shaker. Shake vigorously.
(2) Add ice to chill, then chill by stirring
(3) Strain beverage into glass
(4) Add 3 drops of hibiscus shrub (nice tart finish) and 1 mint leaf for garnish
(5) Drink and enjoy
