Rosy Pink Cosmo
I have heard of flavored vodkas, but never of botanical flavored vodkas. I read about grapefruit and rose flavored vodka and I was sold. I found several brands of it and decided to try Veil Botanic Collection because of the price. Didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something I was not sure was going to love. Well, I got it, and I love it!!! The match of red grapefruit and rose is really aromatic and delicious. I am back into vodka!!!
Once I had the vodka, I wanted to make something fun, elegant but fun. First thought of a martini, but what is more elegant than a Cosmopolitan. If you don’t believe me, ask the girls from Sex and the City! So I decided to do a variation of a traditional Cosmopolitan, using the botanical vodka and some Cointreau Instead of plain cranberry juice, thought the Cranberry and Pineapple juice mix would give it a little more tartness. I had dried rose petals, that are very aromatic and look so pretty, so why not, throw it in as a garnish and voila! Had to admit, had two of them when I came up with the recipe! It is so good!
