If you haven’t read yesterday’s post, I rounded-up a mouth-watering collection of floral-inspired desserts to try for Mother’s day. Today, I’m sharing a cocktail that is also floral-inspired. Roses are meant to symbolize LOVE and that was the reason behind sharing my cocktail recipe to be served on Mother’s day.
If you’re hosting a Mother’s day brunch, make it fancier by treating mom to my ‘Vanilla Pink Rose’ cocktail…perfectly paired with one of these floral-inspired desserts! A dash of rose water to the cocktail mix, a drop of pink food coloring, and garnish with an edible rose petal – transforms the appearance of this cocktail to a dainty and may I add, girly one..a beautifully simple and sweet cocktail for spring! My recipe can also be served alone as a dessert cocktail. If you’re going to serve it like this, than do what I did…in these pictures, I actually used my mini coupe glasses!
This refreshing cocktail is sweet but light and tastes even better when you pre-mix. Let the chocolate bean flavor with vanilla scent of the Creme de Cacao, the creamy flavor of the Whipped Vodka and dash of rose water combine longer.
