Christmas might be a little different this year, so why not get into the spirit of things at home and mix up your favourite festive ‘rosy’ tipples with Lanique Spirit of Rose. Enjoyed in a number of ways, perfectly paired with prosecco, served simply with a squeeze of lime, or twinned with a piece of Turkish delight, there is something to suit everyone’s taste.
THE GIFT OF ROSE
A unique and versatile gift, Lanique Spirit of Rose (RRP *£27 from Waitrose), is a completely natural spirit made with thousands of handpicked, stem-distilled rose petals, extracting the pure essence of rose. With aromas of delicate rose, ripe raspberry and cherry, and flavours reminiscent of Turkish delight and hints of white chocolate; this beautifully bottled bright pink spirit is the ideal gift for the experimental cocktail lover.
Whether you take your cocktail-making seriously or are just after some much needed cheer, bring happy hour to your home with Lanique’s signature cocktails. Perfect for the holiday season, add a splash of sophistication to your toast with a Lanique Rose Fizz – 25ml of Lanique topped with your choice of festive fizz.
For a warming treat, The Winter Rose is made by gently heating in a pan 50ml Lanique with 25ml cognac, 50ml cloudy apple juice and 5ml vanilla syrup, before pouring into a brandy glass; or for the ultimate indulgence, stir 25ml of Lanique into your hot chocolate and top with whipped cream and a dusting of candied rose petals, and voila you have a boozy Turkish Delight Hot Chocolate.
Going out out, then head to Searcys at The Gherkin for the ultra-Instagrammable Searcys Pink 75 – £16 (Lanique, No.3 Gin, Grenadine and champagne) – garnished with white chocolate, strawberry powder and rose petals. Sip whilst soaking up some of the most incredible views of the City, 40 levels up.
