We are fabulously happy to have our new beach hut up and we can’t get enough of it. We are still painting the outside, which seems to thirstily drink-up every layer of paint we apply and we still have shelves to put up. Anyway mid-painting I made a cocktail, which has been bubbling away in the back of my mind since I visited a local Turkish supermarket a couple of months ago and found some delicious Rose Petal Jam.
Roll on summer; I’m ready and waiting for you. I want to waste a serious amount of time sitting and chatting with my family watching the sea waving at me.
Rose Vermouth Sparkle (Serves 8)
8 tablespoons Rose Jam (look in Turkish or Middle Eastern Supermarkets)
200ml Dry Vermouth, chilled
1 bottle of Cava or Prosecco, chilled
Fresh rose petals, optional
In a cocktail shaker, shake together the vermouth, jam until well blended, pour into the bottom of each glass, and top up with the chilled Cava/Prosecco. Give a little stir and a rose petal before serving.
More shots of inside the hut will follow – just need to finish off that painting!!
