My Cousin Rosemary



my cousin rosemary XYZ

My Cousin Rosemary emerges from a different age. Some cocktails, like names are oldies but goodies. This is a simple, but perfect appetite stimulating aperitif. The tart, but sweet-ish grapefruit tempered with delicious elderflower liqueur and vodka has proven to be “a thing”

Elderflower adds lightly acidic notes of pear, passion fruit and lemon with a floral aroma that pairs unusually well with the grapefruit. The neutral flavor of vodka allows all these flavors to shine. Print
