Get ready for brighter days and warmer weather with the floral scents of spring - and a drop of vodka. Instead of reaching for a vase to put your radiant roses in, reach for a bottle and mix up a gorgeous floral cocktail.    

The Dingle Distillerly show you how to make your own flowery infused vodka cocktail, and make a pretty toast to spring. We'll drink to that.

Ingredients

  • 350ml Dingle Ditillery Vodka
  • 1 cup Rose Petals
  • 75ml Orange Blossom Water
  • 20ml Violet Essence
  • 1 Vanilla Pod

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients to a sealable container and allow the gin to infuse for 24-48 hours.
  2. Strain out the solids and petals and either serve immediately or decant into miniature bottles.
  3. Perfect as a champagne topper with a splash of strawberry liqueur to sweeten, or serve with soda water for a refreshing floral cocktail.
