Gin and Rosé Garden Cocktail

Taking a hint from the most popular drink of summer, rosé wine, and pairing it with gin gets us the Gin and Rosé Garden cocktail. This gorgeous and barely pink drink is easy to make, and even easier to drink. It ends up like a sweet-ish and tart-ish garden party in a glass. An absolutely light and refreshing drink.

Gin and Rosé Garden Cocktail with Elderflower Liqueur
What garden themed drink wouldn’t have some elderflower liqueur?

The rosé wine for this drink should suit your tastes. I chose a rather dry version of rosé as not to make this too sweet. Elderflower liqueur, of course, makes an appearance as well bringing quite a bit of sweetness by itself. The nominal bit of fresh lemon juice brings it all together in balance. Hendrick’s gin is also the best choice here, the rosewater and cucumber notes just go with the “theme”.

Other things to try with this Gin and Rosé Garden Cocktail

Try another floral gin! Hendrick’s also has a limited edition Midsummer, which is basically a bouquet in a glass. This may, or may not be too much flower goodness for your tastes. But it doesn’t hurt to try!

If you are out of Elderflower liqueur, but have some Pavan, you may want to try that. Pavan is orange blossom liqueur, and some of us think it has more of a softer taste and brings more citrus to the party.

Try some other garden type of garnishes! Cucumbers, of course, will bring out the Hendrink’s. Or you could try a berry, rhubarb, or whatever else is in your supply.

Cheers to fine decision making!
