The Kate Middleton English Rose

Beyond the china, cutlery, key rings and other royal wedding paraphernalia, a special drink has been created in honor of William and Kate’s nuptials tomorrow. Bacardi has come up with the Kate Middleton English Rose, a pink Drambuie-based cocktail that incorporates the Scottish liqueur named after the Bonnie Prince Charlie – appropriate, since the couple met while away at University in Scotland.

To make the Kate Middleton English Rose, place a sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne flute. Dribble a few drops of orange bitters overtop, then pour over 1 oz. Drambuie. Slowly pour over 4 oz. chilled champagne, sparkling wine or Prosecco (try a rosé for extra pinkness – the original calls for Blanc de Noirs Champagne, if you really want to be authentic). Add a splash of Campari and a few drops of rosewater. For a kid-friendly version, simply use ginger ale, made pink with a splash of grenadine. Kid-friendly or not, garnish your drink with a fresh strawberry.
