After having Rosebuds at Chow, I just had to know how to make one.
The last time we went, we made sure to watch the bartender closely to see what and how much he put into it. Chow provides a list of ingredients on their online cocktail menu so that was a good start.
After close observation and a couple of attempts, I’ve come up with the following recipe. The ingredients online say ‘passionfruit’, which is probably passionfruit juice or drink of some sort. I’ve opted for passionfruit concentrate because that’s what we have in the fridge. Being so, I’ve had to increase the other juices to make up the volume that the concentrate lacks.
The concentrate has seeds but you can just strain those when pouring.
Rosebud (my way)
- 30ml Absolute Vanilla Vodka
- 45ml cranberry juice
- 45ml pineapple juice
- 15ml passionfruit concentrate
- 5ml lemon juice
Put everything into a shaker. Shake really well and strain into a champagne flute. It’s prettier if some froth sits on top so add some from the shaker if it’s all just sitting there.
Not exactly the same as Chow’s but still delicious and very easy to drink – so be careful!
