Whenever I find myself at our local Target, which is always, I usually pick up a four pack of Fentimans Rose Lemonade. I first tried it a couple years ago and it’s absolutely delicious! It has a beautiful botanical aroma and gorgeous light pink color! The drink is great all by itself but it also a wonderful mixer for cocktails and mocktails so I knew I wanted to experiment with it to create a holiday cocktail your can serve at all your upcoming gatherings.
For this drink, The Winter Rose, I wanted to use cranberry as my classic winter flavor but I also wanted to use St.Germain to compliment the botanical aroma and flavors from the Rose Lemonade. Keeping in mind I was creating this cocktail for parties and gatherings, I didn’t want to make it too strong of a drink which is why I only used an ounce and a half of spirits and four ounces of the Rose Lemonade. You could also make a mocktail version of this drink by omitting the vodka and St.Germain and replacing it with some Fever Trees aromatic tonic water or a little elderflower simple syrup and some club soda. I love the botanicals aroma and flavor of this drink mixed with some classic winter flavors and hope you enjoy the drink as well!
The Winter Rose
1oz – Titos Vodka
1/2oz – St.Germain
1oz – Cranberry Juice
4oz – Fentimans Rose Lemonade
In a champagne or coupe glass, combine the vodka, St.Germain, and cranberry juice. Top with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and garnish with some cranberries. Enjoy responsibly! Happy Holidays!

Using St. Germain to balance the botanical taste is such a good idea!! I have a botanical rose vodka that I’ve been looking for the perfect recipe to use with it, and I think I’ve just found it 🙂
