Yesterday, behind my barn, I discovered a single red rose. And I knew what to do with it! For the American Beauty Cocktail I took the recipe from Dale DeGroff “The Essential Cocktail“.
3/4 oz. Brandy, 3/4 oz. Dry Vermouth, 3/4 oz. Orange Juice, 2 dashes Grenadine, 2 dashes Simple Syrup, 1 dash Green crème de Menthe, 1/2 oz. Ruby Port, garnish: 1 Rose petal
Shake ingredients, except the Ruby Port, with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. Float the port on top and garnish with a rose petal.
