Rosé City Sour

For the first weekend at home in awhile, we worked with Portland bartender, Jacob Grier, to craft a Rosé cocktail that’s perfect for a night in.

Rosé City Sour

2 oz London Dry Gin

1 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice

3/4 rosé syrup*

1/2 teaspoon Green Chartreuse

Combine the gin, juice, syrup and Chartreuse in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Option to garnish with an edible flower.

*For the rosé syrup, combine 1 cup Underwood Rosé wine and 1 cup white sugar in a small pot and stir over medium-low heat until the sugar is fully dissolved. Pour into a clean glass bottle and keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
