Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so why not make some rose petal syrup? It’s pretty easy and, well girls like roses. Who wouldn’t impressed with this rosey pisco cocktail from the folks at Pisco Portón.
2 parts Pisco Portón
1.25 parts limoncello
1 parts rose syrup
2 parts lychee juice
Top off with sparkling water
Combine all ingredients and fill with sparkling water. Garnish with an edible rose petal.
To make the rose petal syrup, soak the petals in simple syrup. After the rose petals have soaked, you must heat them up a bit to help remove the strong odors and bring out the flavor.
Simple Syrup Recipe: Using two parts sugar and one part water, bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water, stirring constantly. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Do not allow the syrup to boil for too long or the syrup will be too thick. Allow to cool completely and thicken, then bottle. The cook time is approximately five minutes.
