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!
