Valentine Red Rose Petal Martini

red rose petal martini 001 Valentine Red Rose Petal Martini

This is a Pure Martini Red Rose Petal Fusion that I demonstrated on Fox 29 “Good Morning Show” in Philly for Valentine’s Day. The reduction process occurs overnight. Which is “Herve This” method. Also, I use ZYR Vodka because after trial and error with other Vodka’s I found the Rose Petal fusion actually promotes the flavor of the vodka . Which is exactly what these fusions are designed for to promote the spirit not to cover-up or overwhelm the the flavor of the spirit. ZYR Vodka also goes through a 9 step distillation process which makes ZYR the most pure vodka I have found on the market.

(by Stephen Gary, Artisan Molecular Mixologist)

For the Red Rose Fusion Design

3 cups Distilled Water

3 Red Roses with petal removed. Trim any top edges of rose which tends to add bitterness

15 ea. Red Cherries with pits removed. Cut in Half

1 pinch of Fresh Basil. Equals about 1 leaf

1/2 TBSP of Fresh Agave nectar

Step 1: In a non-stick saute pan add 1 cup of distilled water.

Step 2: While bringing water to simmer slowly add the fresh Agave Nectar.

Step 3: Add Red Cherries.

Step 4: Add Half of Rose Petals.

Step 5: Bring to simmer and remove from heat.

Step 2: Slowly stir in pinch of Basil.

Step 3: Slowly fold in remaining Rose Petals.

Step 4: In a 1 qt. ceramic dish add remaining distilled water-then slowly incorporate Rose Petal Fusion to ceramic dish.

Step 5: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or 12 hours.

Note: It’s important to use a non-stick pan so that oil/butter will not be needed to prevent sticking, thus creating an undesirable flavor.

Also, Using a ceramic dish to hold fusion overnight is also to prevent any additional flavor that a metal or plastic dish may create.

2.5 oz. ZYR

2.5 oz. Rose Fusion

    Sounds great–however, make sure that the roses aren’t sprayed with chemicals, which is prevalent with flowers imported from South America.
