I am unabashedly in love with the Rose Cordial from local Portland company, Portland Syrups. Here is a cocktail and a recipe for rose pistachio brittle.
Rose City Lassi
1 cup Greek yogurt
1.5 oz Tanqueray Rangpur*
1.25 oz Rose Cordial from Portland Syrups
1 tsp honey
3ish dashes cardamom bitters (Scrappy's, also a local Portland company)
Shake rose water
Pistachios/rose pistachio brittle for garnish 🥀
Blend this all up, adjust your sweetness.
*Tanqueray Rangpur is the way to go for this recipe. The lime tang gives it the buzz needed to punch up the yogurt and enhance the rose flavor.
I used this recipe from Epicurious and made the following adjustments: substituted water for rose water, reduced salt to 3/4 teaspoon. I also was a rebel and used salted butter since I thought the rose water
might make it too sweet. Don't be like me - follow the recipe and use unsalted!
