The perfect Spring Racing cocktail

spring-cocktail-1The Spring Carnival is upon us here in Melbourne and I have the perfect Spring Carnival cocktail for you. This is a twist on a classic, the Cosmopolitan but what a difference a few ingredients make. This cocktail is delightful in taste and fragrance, the secret being rosewater essence. 

Make a big batch and serve in cosmopolitan glasses or cute vintage glasses like I did. The apples make this cocktail great for all seasons. I can picture it served at Christmas or at a fall wedding. Any occasion where you are with loved ones, as the rosewater essence makes this drink a little more special and romantic.

This cocktail recipe is not one you can keep to yourself, so put on a brunch or afternoon soirée, grab a group of friends, dress up and enjoy.
