ROSE GARDEN

1 oz. Mezcal
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
Juice of Half a Grapefruit
2 Rosemary Sprigs
3 – 4oz. Rosè @stellarosa

Add Mezcal and 2 large rosemary sprigs to shaker and muddle. Add syrup and squeeze juice from half grapefruit. Shake with ice. Strain into wine glass over ice and top with rosè. Garnish rosemary sprig and grapefruit twist.

I saw a bunch of people posting some awesome looking rose cocktails to celebrate and support the release of Ashely’s @craftandcocktails book, Celebrate Rosè. Thought it was a good opportunity to jump on the train with my first rosè cocktail. Ive been wanting to experiment more with mezcal so I thought I would see how it paired with rosè, which turns out it does pretty well, adding a deep smokey bite to the sweetness of it. Grapefruit was a no brainer since it goes so well with both mezcal and rosè and I threw in some rosemary to make for a refreshing summer sip. Cheers!
