About this Cocktail

Created circa 1920, perhaps by one Johnny Mitta at the Chatham Hotel, Paris, the Rose is considered by cocktail historian David Wondrich to be one of the greatest cocktails ever invented. When I tried it I had to agree, and I included it in my list of The 16 Greatest Cocktails in Creation. The flavors are delicate, truly unique, and crazy-delicious.

  • 2 oz Dolin dry vermouth
  • 1 oz Schladerer Kirschwasser
  • 1 tsp raspberry syrup or Chambord

Stir and strain into a chilled glass. Cherry garnish.

    This is pretty much the kind of drink I can't resist.
  • Matthias Zeller
    Great! I made a variation that turned out well balanced. 2oz Dolin dry vermouth, 1oz St. George Kirsch eau de vie, 1/4oz St. George raspberry liqueur, 1/4oz simple syrup. Luxardo cherry garnish.
