Friday morning cocktail testing: Prosecco and Rose

Is it too early to test cocktails? It’s 5 p.m. in Paris…

I brought back this confit of rose petals–subtly sweet and fragrant–from Montreal. Stir a tablespoon or two into a glass of chilled bubbly…and garnish with a rose petal.

    Recently, we’ve had two summer cocktails in rotation at our house: Buffalo Rock ginger ale & Bulleit bourbon with bruised mint (kind of a spicy julep)

    and a dressed-up g+t: a slice of lime and a slice of cucumber (seeds removed) muddled in a glass, ice, gin, and tonic. Garnish with extra lime, if you like (I do).

    The rose confit sounds incredible…especially with bubbly—my all-time fave!
