A gin-based cocktail that also contains vermouth, cherry brandy and fruit syrup. The Rose was a popular cocktail in 1920s Paris and is said to have been created by Johnny Mitta, barman at the Chatham Hotel in Paris.
Sweet, colourful and slightly herbal, the Black Rose has an interesting flavour profile that is very well-balanced.
Traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice, the Sidecar cocktail is a boozy drink that is slightly on the sour side. A sugared glass rim or the addition of some sugar syrup seems to be increasingly popular today; probably because of our sweet tooth.
