Cocktail Hour: Rosé Spritz Recipe

Cocktail Hour: Rosé Spritz Recipe - Female Original

Another day another cocktail recipe to try out at home. This time I’m sharing a lovely light, refreshing spritz that’s perfect for sunny day sipping..a rosé spritz. I found the inspiration for this recipe over on Taste of Home from their ‘Swedish Rose Spritz’ recipe and knew I had to try it for myself. As always, however, I’ve put my own twist on the recipe! This post includes an item that was gifted to me (marked with an asterisk). All opinions are of course my own.

The Rosé Spritz

My discovery of the rosé spritz came about after I cracked open a bottle of one of my new favourite rosés on a sunny Friday evening to share with my family (a ‘Wine Wednesday‘ feature for it is currently pending!). When it came to Sunday I suddenly realised that I had around a third of the bottle left in the fridge still to drink. As much as I love the rosé as it is, it’s always fun to try something new. So I did a little search online for rosé cocktails and stumbled upon a ‘Swedish Rose Spritz’. A quick browse through the recipe and I was completely sold. It sounded like the ultimate Sunday afternoon drink and I couldn’t wait to try it!

The Rosé Spritz: Elevating Your Spritz Garnish

When it comes to cocktails, the fruit that we use to garnish our drinks can so often be overlooked. It’s so easy to just miss the garnish out altogether or throw in a slice of old lemon that’s looking a bit worse for wear. But the garnish is so important for bringing your drink together. If, like me, you love a good sliced fruit garnish in your drinks (whether it be an alcoholic or alcohol free one) then you might be familiar with the struggle of having half used lemons and limes sat on your countertop whenever you make a few drinks.

The number of times that I’ve made a batch of cocktails, garnished them all with a slice of fruit, only used half of the fruit and had the other half sat there for a week (before its inevitable chuck into the bin) is insane. But thankfully I’ve recently been introduced to Nim’s Infusions.

Nim’s Infusions*

The ‘Infusions’ are the latest range from air-dried fruit crisp producer, Nim’s. Similarly to the crisps, Nim’s Infusions are air-dried but they’re exclusively dried citrus fruits instead. In the range they’ve got dried lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit and even kumquat, and all of them come in a resealable pouch with a shelf life of up to 9 months. Just pop one or two slices into any drink for a fruity twist and minimal fruit waste!

NOTE: Rather than finishing the spritz with a slice of fruit you’ll want to add the Nim’s Infusions slices in FIRST. This gives them a bit of time to rehydrate and release some of their delicious fruity flavours.

Method

Fill three-quarters of your glass with ice (I normally go for a stemless wine glass)

Add your slice of Nim’s Infusions dried lemon

Pour in the rosé and elderflower liqueur

Top up with 7UP (or lemonade)

Serve and enjoy!

  10. This sounds absolutely delicious! Perfect for a hot summer afternoon. I’m not the biggest aperol fan in the world and this sounds like such a nice alternative. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had rose in a cocktail before and I’m starting to question why because this sounds amazing x
