Baja Bloom

Rose water is easy to find at any liquor store and most grocery stores. Nielsen Massey makes a good version that’s available for about $10 and will last you a long time. We make a lot of rosy cocktails around here because Sauce loves literally everything about that plant. The colors, the perfumes, the texture of petals, lotions with rose essence, the whole nine yards. This beverage is a springtime take on a margarita. Lets welcome the changing of the season!


Equipment: shaker, strainer, coupe glass

2 oz blanco tequila (Milagro is our house favorite)

1 oz velvet falernum

¾ oz lime juice

3 drops rose water

Tulip petal or edible flower for garnish


Combine tequila, velvet falernum, lime juice and rose water in shaker with ice. Shake for 15-20 seconds and strain into couple glass. Garnish with tulip petal or edible flower.

Tulip petals make amazing garnishes. They are slightly less odorous than a rose and when eaten taste like lettuce. The colors really pop and they’re great to grow at home so you don’t have to worry about any sort of chemical treatment it went through before gracing your glass.
