Rosey Posey

1/2 cup of water

1 cup of sugar

Washed petals of 3 roses

Pink food coloring

La Marca Prosecco

Using fresh organic rose petals (they must be free of pesticides) that have been washed, heat 1/2 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Add the washed petals of 3 roses, turn the heat down to low, and let the mixture simmer (about 15 minutes). Add a tiny drop of pink food coloring, if desired. Remove from heat and let cool before straining the mixture through a fine sieve. Pour into a jar (makes enough for 3-4 cocktails).Fill the bottom of a glass with 2 ounces homemade rose syrup. Top with 6 ounces of Prosecco, and edible flowers.To get a color blocked look, like the one in the photos, pour the Prosecco into the campaign flute so that it falls gently down the side of the flute - that way it won’t disrupt the syrup.
