I'm the Seattle Sales Representative for Seattle Cider Company and Two Beers Brewing, and have been with the company for three years. Previously, I was a bartender at a classic cocktail and whiskey bar in Bellevue. I play rugby for Seattle Rugby Club, and in my free time you can find me reading fantasy, watching Lord of the Rings, or quoting Marvel movies.
If you don't end up making this cocktail, do me a favor and pick up a pack of Seattle Cider Berry Rose or Sparkling Papaya to enjoy during Pride. Proceeds from both will benefit Seattle GSBA and Washington's LGBTQ+ chamber of commerce.
Night at the Rosé
1.5oz Lunazul Reposado (or your choice of tequila)
1oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/2oz prickly pear syrup
1/2oz Lillet Rosé
2 dashes Scrappy’s Firewater Tincture
Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake with ice for approximately 30 seconds. Pour all contents into a glass with a salted rim, and top with 2 dashes of Scrappy’s Firewater Tincture. Serve with a lime wedge.
To make the prickly pear syrup, combine hot water, sugar, and prickly pear puree in a 1:1:1 ratio and mix together until the sugar is dissolved. If you cannot find prickly pear, pomegranate juice works as well.
Lillet Rosé is a French apéritif that has flavors of berries, orange blossom, and grapefruit. It can be enjoyed all summer either in this cocktail or simply served with tonic, ice, and a lime wedge.
