The Rose Hipster is a floral fizz created especially to incorporate Sacred’s rosehip liqueur. We mix the rosehip flavoured spirit with rhubarb syrup, lemon juice and a dash of rhubarb bitters before topping it all off with a healthy splash of prosecco to make this elegant bellini style cocktail.

Method

Chill your champagne flute in the freezer or by filling it with ice.

Once your glass is chilled, about 4-5 minutes later, get ready to add your ingredients.

Using your jigger to measure, add the gin to your shaker.

Using your jigger or your bar spoon (5ml) to measure, add the rosehip liqueur, and rhubarb syrup to the glass.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 10ml of lemon juice and add it to the glass before adding a dash of rhubarb bitters.

Using your bar spoon, give the ingredients a quick stir to combine and then fill the glass with prosecco.

History

This drink was created a Bethnal Green boozer and sister-bar to TT Liquor, The Sun Tavern, by our very own Jake Rogers, during his stint as head bartender there around 2013. Jake says:

“I created this drink while I was working at the Sun Tavern a few years ago, especially to showcase Sacred’s rosehip liqueur. Sacred are this great gin and vermouth brand from London that also make liqueurs, the rosehip is rosey and perfumed but also slightly bitter, paired with that vegetal sweetness of rhubarb and a bit of herbaceousness from the gin, the floral flavour of the rosehip really shines – top it off with a bit of prosecco and you’ve got a great summer fizz.”

Rosehips are the fruit of the rose plant, a small, hard, berry-like fruit with a subtle floral flavour and a slight bitterness. These strange fruits can be made into teas, jams and various alcoholic products from wines and meads to liqueurs and brandies, whilst the rosehip can be eaten raw, special care must be taken to avoid the small hairs that surround the seeds, these tiny fibres are a powerful irritant and are in fact used to make itching powder.
