    Signature Drink- Kiss of the Rose Martini

Signature Drink- Kiss of the Rose Martini

1 oz. Effen Black Cherry Vodka
3/4 oz. rose petal syrup*
1/2 oz. Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Garnish with rose petals

Combine first four ingredients in a martini shaker.

Pour into a martini glass.

Garnish with a rose petal. This is very dark red and is especially good for weddings and Valentine’s Day.

*Rose petal syrup is made by boiling bright red rose petals for a few hours, straining out the petals and adding sugar to create delicious rose flavored simple syrup.

Location: Less than an hour away from Fort Collins, Denver and Boulder, Longmont is very much centralized on northern Colorado’s Front Range. Made up of a combination of certified creative and historic downtown districts and St. Vrain State Park on its outskirts, Longmont is a lively scene for those who appreciate a mix of urban and outdoor living.


It’s easy to meld urban adventures with brewery or culinary experiences that are sure to leave attendees grinning.

1. Pair an artistic adventure at the brand new Board & Brush creative studio at The Exchange in Old Town with a stop at Copper Muse Distillery or Infinite Monkey Theorem winery, located in the same open-air plaza.
