Bed of Roses: A Delicious way to Spice up the Night

Bed of Roses Valentines cocktail
Spring, Summer, Holiday

About this Recipe

Oh, Valentine’s Day. The day of lovers, the day of romance, the day of overpriced flowers and chocolates. It’s also perfect day to make a cocktail for your loved one to get the mood going. We’ve got just the recipe in mind.



  • 1.5 oz Ketel One Grapefruit and Rose Vodka
  • .5oz Ferino Amaro Cannella
  • .5oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • .5oz chipotle strawberry syrup (instructions below)
  • 1 egg white – for froth
  • 3 dashes Scrappy’s Bitter Firewater Tincture
  • Grapefruit zest
  • Frozen strawberries


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4-5 sliced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle pepper flakes
  • 1 cup water



The Syrup

Simple syrups are well, simple. For this flavor, slice up your strawberries, and add them to a pot with one cup sugar, one cup water and two tablespoons of chipotle pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15(ish) minutes. To get more chipotle flavor, let the syrup sit for an hour or so before straining and bottling.

The Cocktail

There are really two ways to go about this. Personally, I find it much easier to get your egg white frothy using an immersion blender. If you’re lucky enough to own one, proceed as follows:

Combine the syrup, vodka, liqueur, lemon juice, bitters and egg white into a tall, cylindrical container. Mix with the immersion blender until the entire mixture is nice and frothy.


The Garnish

Freeze some fresh strawberries the day before to use in lieu of ice cubes.

Pro tip: Leave a short stem on your rose garnish and poke it into one of the strawberries to keep it from sinking.
