Impress your guests with this surprising spa-inspired cocktail.

by Amber Hawthorne

Spa days call for a refreshing floral cocktail and the Rose Cardamom is my personal favorite.

I've been making these for my customers for over 10 years now and it never disappoints. It's refreshing and comforting all at the same time. If you want to wow your guests with minimal effort and create a delicious crowd-pleasing drink that surprises your guests' palates in all the right ways, look no further.

Rose Cardamom Cocktail:

1.5 oz of Hendrick’s gin (this is a rose & cucumber infused gin)
.75 oz of Rose Syrup (make at home with rose water and sugar or buy locally)
.25 oz of Fresh lemon juice
1 oz of Fresh grapefruit juice (ruby red preferably)
2 dashes of Peychauds bitters (Peychaud is credited with first creating the cocktail)
1 cardamom pod

1. Lightly muddle 1 cardamom pod at the bottom of shaker (not too much muddling or it will overpower the drink)
2. Add the rest of the ingredients
3. Add ice
4. Shake for 30 seconds
5. Strain over fresh ice to remove the cardamom pod
7. Garnish with rose petals (use organic if possible)

Planning on making this? Don't forget to pair it with skincare. We like to relax and multi-mask while enjoying a cocktail. Pick up a facial mask here.
