English Rose Martini
…why you might ask?…after reading the description, I couldn’t wait for spring to arrive!
“Enjoy this fruity variation of the martini as your roses come into bloom. Apricot brandy is perfect for the spring cocktails and in the English Rose it is accented with sweet lemon and pomegranate flavors.”
“An English Rose is a delightful variation of the classic martini. It’s sweeter, using apricot brandy, grenadine and lemon for flavor but it is still a great before dinner drink.”
