The simple touch of rose can take the average Martini to a new level filled with a delightful and gentle floral notes. I developed this cocktail for a friend's birthday using the summer gardens as inspiration and it is a great addition to any a garden party.

While I prefer one of the newer, lighter style of gins like Hendrick's, I have also made this using vodka and it tastes just as good. The rose flavor is obtained by simply using a rose-infused simple syrup, which you can easily make at home and store for use as an alternative to plain syrup in other cocktails.
