Rose Gin Fizz

This one is pretty simple – My first experiment with my Rose infused simple syrup:

Rose Gin Fizz

1.5 oz Gin (I used Plymouth, but I imagine any would work)

.5 oz Lime juice

.5 oz Rose infused simple syrup

Shake with ice, strain into an ice-filled glass Collins glass and top with Soda. Stir gently a few times to ensure everything is mixed.

It’s pretty much your standard Gin fizz. The rose flavour comes through, though subtly. All in all, it’s a light, refreshing drink. Tasty!

Cheers

Infused Simple Syrups

Made a few different infused syrups tonight.

Apparently February 22nd is National Margarita Day in the US, so this is a day late, but I’m Canadian – Sue me. We do things differently up here.

Normally this is where I would rant about how people have taken a once-great cocktail and popularized it as a neon coloured, sickly sweet, vile slushy mess but…meh. If that’s what floats your boat, I’m not going to stop you. I will say it’s *wrong*, but c’est la vie.  In other words, to paraphrase…well, someone: I disprove of what you drink, but I will defend to the death your right to drink it!

That being said, if you’ve never taken the time to make a proper Margarita, do it soon. You’re missing out on a great drink.

What better way to start off a blog about Booze and Tea then a cocktail that incorporate the two of them together? Or tries to, at least.

But let’s start at the beginning…
