"The blushing rose" - a vermouth cocktail
The ingredients might seem unusual, but this cocktail is a delicious, fragrant combination.
- 5 raspberries approx
- 2 oz hibiscus tea 60ml, cold
- 2 oz vermouth extra dry 60ml
- 1 oz white rum 30ml, or cachaça
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon rosewater or slightly less if you are unsure
Press the raspberries through a small sieve to hold back the seeds but get the pulp.
Add the hibiscus tea, vermouth, rum/cachaça, sugar and rosewater. Add some ice and shake to cool, then strain into a glass, or else simply stir together if you prefer it less cold.
