Rose perfume is blousy and bold and tricky to tame. Raspberry, with its lush flavor and bright color, is a worthy companion. Usually I would expect and even encourage a potent flavor like rose to have its way, but when I introduced these two, I was shocked at how graciously the rose slipped into the background, creating a delightfully ethereal fruit liqueur. It makes an enchanting cooler poured over ice and splashed with soda.

Raspberry Rose Liqueur Recipe


• 1 fifth (750 ml/3 1/4 cups) vodka (80–100 proof)
• 1 ounce (about 2 1/2 cups) dried rose petals
• 1 cup fresh raspberries
• Finely grated zest of 1 tangerine
• 1 cup Simple Syrup (recipe below)


1. Combine the vodka, rose petals, raspberries, and tangerine zest in a half-gallon jar. Stir to moisten everything.

2. Seal the jar and put it in a cool, dark cabinet until the liquid smells and tastes strongly of roses, 3 to 5 days.

3. Strain the mixture with a mesh strainer into a clean quart jar. Do not push on the solids to extract more liquid.

4. Stir in the simple syrup.

5. Seal and store in a cool, dark cabinet. Use within 1 year.

Simple Syrup Recipe

This all-purpose simple syrup is employed in the formulas for most liqueurs.


• 2 1/4 cups water
• 2 1/4 cups granulated cane sugar


Mix the water and sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar is all moistened. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to make sure the sugar is completely dissolved, then remove from the heat and let cool. Refrigerate for up to 3 months.
