Serious Eats: Recipes
Note: This recipe is part of Kerry Saretsky's series The Secret Ingredient. This month's featured ingredient is rose water. Kerry also gives recipes that use rose water for Melon and Mozzarella Salad with Rose Water Vinaigrette and Crisp Prosciutto and Blackberries and Raspberries with Rose Sabayon.
This simple but unique cocktail pairs good rosé wine with a splash of rose water. The pair obviously plays on the color pink, but the rose water also accents the often fruity-floral notes of a good rosé. As an optional crown, I whirl sugar and dried rose petals together for the prettiest in pink wineglass rim.
