The “Sweetheart” with Hangar 1 Rose´ Vodka

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and do I have a cocktail for you, The Sweetheart that includes rose vodka.

This sweetheart of a cocktail is so very refreshing with a lightly sweet and fruitful flavor, and featuring Hangar 1’s latest, rose´ vodka and Topo Chico mineral water. This unique blend includes Hangar 1 vodka and real California rosé wine.

Hanger 1 describes the tasting notes as follows…

“Floral with notes of crisp apple, sweet pea blossoms, and a hint of oak on the nose, with a silky and soft mouthfeel finishing fresh with hints of cranberry.”

Something tells me this new rose vodka is going to be a hit.  I see it now… there will be a specialty rose´ vodka cocktail for every occasion including bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthdays, anniversaries, and so on.  Get on board ladies!!  And gentlemen too!

After experimenting and some trial and error, “The Sweetheart” cocktail came about and includes a medley of ingredients but can also be made on the skinny side.

The first step is to muddle a half strawberry, one sugar cube, and a few dashes of Peychaud’s bitters at the bottom of a glass.

muddled strawberry for drink

Peychaud’s is a classic aromatic bitter that is sweet in taste with a strong floral aroma.

This bitter pairs well with strawberries and the sugar brings it together creating a lasting taste.

Once you’ve muddled the strawberry down to the pulp, add the rose vodka, ice, soda water and top it off with a fresh squeeze of lemon (not pictured).

The “Sweetheart” is a great drink of choice for brunch, lunch, and/or dinner.  Would pair well with a refreshing salad, chicken, fish, or even a hearty steak.

And if you’re watching your calories and/or sugar intake then not to worry… just skip the sugar cube and bitters.

The “Skinny Sweetheart”

Hangar 1 rose´vodka, soda water, muddled half strawberry and a fresh squeeze of lemon juice.
