Strawberry-Rose Gin Fizz
This gorgeous strawberry-rose gin fizz created by Dessert for Two is perfect for moms who want something a bit stronger than Champagne, but with the delicate flavors of rosewater and strawberries.

- 4 shots of gin
- 1 teaspoon of rose water
- A pinch of salt

First, wash and de-stem the strawberries. Next, dice into extremely small pieces. Sprinkle sugar over the strawberries, and let them sit for 5 minutes. After, mash the strawberries with a fork to release their juices. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add the strawberry mixture, the gin, rose water, and the smallest pinch of salt. Shake well, and then divide the cocktail between two glasses. Top off each glass with club soda, and squeeze a lime wedge into each glass.

To make this cocktail, place the hibiscus flower in the bottom of a champagne glass. Then, add the pear vodka to the glass. Top off the glass with champagne. Serve immediately.
