In my opinion there really aren’t enough cocktails in the world that call for Lillet Rosé. Today I’m remedying that with a pretty pink drink I like to call a Gin & Roses. Homemade rose simple syrup, Lillet Rosé and a hearty splash of gin, garnished with a twist of lemon and served in a champagne coupe. The flavor is floral, sweet and entirely unexpected! I highly recommend shaking up a round of Gin & Roses for your next ladies night or swanky soirée.
