Jessica Rose Cocktail

If you remember our Birch & Bourbon post, you’ll remember Hartford Flavor Company! Shortly after that post, I attended a CADC & HFCo. happy hour at their Hartford shop and was wowed while tasting other flavors and learning about how they make their liqueurs. Both Curtis and I fell immediately in love with the rose flavor and knew we needed a bottle at home. And when we tried the Jessica Rose cocktail, it was game-over.

This past weekend we celebrated my Oma’s 80th birthday by hosting my Mom’s side of the family for dinner and dessert before going to a show at Hartford Stage. We decided to kick off the evening with a light cocktail – this lovely rose drink. It was a hit, and the pink-orange color looked so pretty with my table cloth 🙂

Recipe: The Jessica Rose, adapted from Hartford Flavor Company

1 oz. Wild Moon Rose Liqueur
1 oz. vodka (I used Prairie)
2.5 oz Lemonade
Squeeze of fresh lemon (I used Meyer lemons)
Lemon garnish

Mix together in a cocktail shaker, pour and enjoy!
