Category
Ingredients
Bunch of mint, leaves picked
Petals of 3 unsprayed roses, plus 6 small unsprayed roses to garnish
3 shots (90ml) gin
1/4 cup (60ml) lemon juice
Ice cubes, to serve
750ml bottle sparkling white wine, chilled
Rose syrup:
150g caster sugar
1 Tbsp rosewater
Method
Chill six tall glasses in the fridge. For the syrup, place sugar and 100ml water in a pan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, then remove from heat. Stir in rosewater, then chill until it has cooled completely. Bruise the mint leaves and rose petals in your hands to release their aroma, then stuff them into the chilled glasses. In two batches, combine gin, lemon juice, rose syrup and plenty of ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well, then pour into the glasses and top up with sparkling wine. Tuck in a rose to garnish, then serve immediately with a straw.
