There is no better way to embrace a new season than with a cocktail crafted specifically for the season! Cocktails are a great way to impress your guests, and celebrate! Vodka is my go-to spirit of choice, and I have found an absolute GEM of a distillery… Western Son. I adore Western Son Distillery and the beautiful array of flavored vodkas they offer. With so many fabulous vodka options, Western Son was the perfect distillery to use for my cocktail recipe. I was inspired to create a tart, savory, slightly sweet, and perfectly balanced drink for holiday celebrations.

With that being said, allow me to introduce you to the Western Rose Cocktail!

Servings 1
Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Western Son Lemon or Original Vodka
  • ½ oz. Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • ¾ oz. Rosemary Simple Syrup
  • 1 ½ oz. Cranberry Juice
  • Sugar, Lemon Juice, and Sugar-coated Rosemary Spring for Garnish

Instructions

  • In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add Western Son Lemon or Original Vodka, lemon juice, rosemary simple syrup, and cranberry juice. 
  • Shake. Strain in a chilled martini glass garnished with a half rim of sugar. Garnish with sugar-coated rosemary spring and a lemon slice. 

Notes

To Make the Rosemary Simple Syrup…
(Yields: 2 cups)
Ingredients:
2 cups water 
5 fresh rosemary sprigs 
1 ¼ cup sugar, divided 
In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil; remove from heat. Add 5 rosemary springs. Steep for 2 minutes. Remove rosemary. Place on a paper towel and set aside. Add 1 cup of sugar to the water. Stir until dissolved. Cool completely. 
Place ¼ cup sugar on a plate. Using the steeped rosemary sprigs from the simple syrup, roll each sprig in sugar for garnish. 

Tiffy’s Tips

~If you prefer a less tart cocktail, use Western Son Original Vodka. More of a tart flavor, use Western Son Lemon Vodka. 

~For the rosemary garnish, I prepared with monk fruit sweetener but use the sweetener of your choice. 

~Use cranberry juice (not cranberry juice cocktail). 

~Store Rosemary Simple Syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
