Raspberry Rose Gin Fizz Recipe (makes one cocktail)
For the raspberry simple syrup
For the cocktail
1 1/2oz gin
3/4oz Chambord or any raspberry liqueur
3/4ozraspberry simple syrup
1 1/2ozsparkling water
Edible rose petals for garnish
Potato masher or something to smash the raspberries
Small sauce pan
Start by making the raspberry simple syrup. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is fully dissolved. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then remove from heat and let it cool completely. This gives you plain 'ol simpIe syrup!
Once the simple syrup is cool (about 30 minutes), add the raspberries. Use a potato masher to crush the raspberries up. Pour the simple syrup mixture into a strainer and throw away the excess raspberries.
Add the egg white to your shaker and shake for about 15 seconds without ice. Once you’ve gotten your egg white all hot and bothered, fill your shaker with the rest of the ingredients, except for the sparkling water.
Add ice to your cocktail shaker and aggressively shake it for about 30 seconds.
Once thoroughly shaken, add ice to your cocktail glass and pour in the cocktail mixture. Top off with sparkling water and give her a good garnish.
