National Martini Day with Purity Vodka

Happy Monday, everyone! Did you know that today is National Martini Day? What better way to kick off the week?!

To celebrate, I decided to shake up  a delicious, IG-worthy martini. With some help from Purity Vodka and Food & Wine, I present to you the most coveted It-Drink of the season, the Darling Rose Martini! 🍸

This martini was inspired by current obsession with floral accents. I’ve been using a lot of rose-based products lately, so I wanted to take a go at crafting a rose-infused martini! The result was a super smooth, aromatic sweet drink. I think I found a new favorite!

The Darling Rose Martini Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups Purity Vodka
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon rose water
  • Ice cubes
  • 24 edible rose petals
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: makes 8 drinks

              Directions:

    1. In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Let cool, then stir in the vodka, lemon juice and rose water.
    2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add one-fourth of the martini mixture and shake. Strain into 2 martini glasses, garnish with rose petals and serve. Repeat to make the remaining martinis.

      I got them from Amazon! Essentially are roses are edible though right? So I’m sure you’d be fine with store-bought flowers if you gave the petals a good wash!

      Purity is awesome! And the rose oil really masked the strength of the vodka itself.
