2 Ways To Make The Perfect Love Potion February 7, 2019

by Eat

In the spirit of romance, we created these two perfect (and pink!) love potions. What’s a love potion, you ask?  Read on!

Rose Petal Vodka 

Save the bouquet for the amateurs. We’re setting the mood by adding a touch of whimsy to our dinnertime cocktails. Not only is this recipe gorgeous and guaranteed to make your date swoon; it’s super simple to create! The most important rule of this recipe is to get organic roses and rinse them thoroughly before using. Ready, set, impress!

Serves: 2

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2-3 Organic Roses, depetaled
  • Distilled Water
  • 3 oz Vodka (or your favorite clear spirit)

Here’s what you’ll do:

1. Remove petals from roses and rinse thoroughly under water.

2. Add rose petals to an ice cube tray and cover halfway with distilled water. Freeze for a few hours.

3. Remove the half frozen ice cubes from the freezer and fill the remaining with distilled water. This will allow your roses to be in the center of your ice cubes.

4. Freeze overnight and add to your favorite beverages. We topped our rose garden in a glass with vodka!

Love Potion Cocktail 

We can’t confirm that this recipe is an actual love potion but it’s the next best thing. This pretty-in-pink cocktail is kissed with elderflower liqueur, refreshing gin, and topped with sparkling rosé wine.  Nothing says “I love you” more than a pink cocktail.

Serves: 2

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Elderflower Liqueur
  • 6 oz Rosé Champagne

Here’s what you’ll do:

1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the following: gin, elderflower liqueur, and lime juice. Add ice and shake for 10 seconds.

2. Add regular ice cubes OR rose petal ice cubes to an empty cocktail glass. Strain cocktail mixture over ice into two glasses.

3. Top with rosé champagne, garnish with a fresh rose petal and cheers to a lovely evening.
