For God’s Sake, Jackie!

- 0.5 oz. rose liqueur (Courvoisier)
- 0.5 oz. ginger liqueur (Canton)
- 0.25 oz. mint tea liqueur (Five Foxes)
- 0.25 oz. lemon juice
- dash of lemon bitters
Shake with ice and strain into coupe. Garnish with 4 drops of rose water and rose petals.
Here’s a cocktail I did for my cast of Billy Elliot at Seacoast Repertory Theatre in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Nothing thematic about the drink, but the title is from a line in the show (and my character’s name). I’d been sitting on both the rose liqueur and mint tea liqueur, so it was nice to utilize them. Skip the rose petals, by the way. Makes for a nice pic but detracts from the drink. I thought it would be a nice touch. I was wrong. For God’s sake, Jackie!
