Rose Margarita (Rosarita?)

Although I’ve never lived there, I’ve definitely inherited a taste for all things Turkish from my father, and a love of all things rose is one of them. I think if given the chance the only thing I’d ever have on toast is rose petal jam (marmite comes second) and I’m quite partial to rose flavoured everything – see my post on rose cupcakes. Anyhooooo, getting to the point here, I love a cocktail on a Friday evening and I think that Lanique is rather special. It’s a rose liqueur spirit that you can drink just like a GnT, topped with fizz, as a sour over ice with lime, as a martini, mojito, or just like this as a margarita. Isn’t it pretty?

Yes I need a new bottle, and yes this one is dusty


Makes 2 small glasses:

30ml Lanique

70ml tequila

30ml sugar syrup

50ml lime juice


  1. Fling all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake hard for a good 30 seconds.
  2. Strain into your glass of choice, and garnish with a slice of lime if you’re feeling fancy.
  3. Welcome to the weekend!

PS Yes the glass is very pretty too. I was given a set for my birthday after none other than Stanley Tucci recommended them as he prepared a Negroni. If it’s good enough for The Tucci its good enough for me!
