TOSSWARE presents a delicious Valentine's Day cocktail for you, the Rosé 75! This drink is a pink twist on the classic French 75, a libation invented during World War I. The drink is named after the French 75 mm field gun due to it's deceptively strong punch. The sweetness of sparkling Champagne masks the extra liquor in the glass, giving it quite the potency. Our Rosé 75 uses bubbling Rosé in the place of Champagne to celebrate Valentine's Day! We also substituted lime for the standard lemon juice to balance the sweetness of the Rosé. This drink is best served in TOSSWARE's 9oz flute glass due to it's bubble-friendly shape.
TOSSWARE'S Rose 75
6 oz Rosé
2 oz Gin
1/2 lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
Berries for garnish
1. Fill shaker with ice, gin, lime juice and simple syrup. We chose Bombay Sapphire gin for its complex flavor profile, complemented by the Rosé.
3. Give it a long martini shake (about 45-60 seconds) and strain the contents fo the shaker into TOSSWARE's 9oz flute.
4. Fill TOSSWARE flute to the top with a freshly corked, bubbling Rosé.
4. Garnish with mixed red berries such as blackberries, strawberries or raspberries. Any berries are delicious with this recipe, but our personal favorite were the blackberries. They're a bit tart helping balance this sweet drink. Enjoy!
Flowers and Champagne go together like Valentine's Day and love, so we decided to use flowers in a playful way. Floral ice is a simple touch adds an elegant touch to an ice bucket. Simply fill an ice cube tray with filtered water and small flower petals. After a few hours pop out the ice, pop open a bottle of Rosé, and celebrate the person you love! The ice is lovely for an ice bucket, but we've also used it in TOSSWARE's 12oz Tumbler Jr or 14oz Vino paired with sparkling water.
