Rose Martini Recipe

Happy Birthday, Betty! In celebration of Betty White’s 99th birthday today and her iconic role as Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls, I thought I would create a cocktail that she might enjoy.

Because Betty likes vodka, I infused rose petals in a bottle of premium vodka and made a classic martini.


2 oz Rose-infused Vodka
¼ oz Dry Vermouth


Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a few fresh edible rose petals or dried mini rosebuds.

Rose-infused Vodka Recipe

This recipe is easy to prepare and makes a great gift.


750 ml bottle of premium vodka
1/4 cup dried edible rose petals


Combine the vodka and rose petals in a jar and stir. You could also make this recipe with your favorite gin.

Seal the jar and store it for one week in a cool dark place. Shake the jar a few times during the week to help combine. To serve, strain through a fine-mesh strainer.
