As fall approaches, we look for creative ways to bring friends and family together for an unforgettable dining experience. Incorporating unusual ingredients or food offerings is a great way to add a unique twist to your next brunch or dinner party. Adrian Durban Florists suggests that you try adding edible flowers to your favorite dish or cocktails to delight guests and infuse your event with a shot of the unexpected.
Add touches of fall to your entertaining with a gorgeous Golden Amber Bouquet. This vibrant autumnal arrangement is breathtaking in its shimmering opalescent mercury glass cube vase with golden ombre finish. Use as a centerpiece to compliment your champagne brunch with rose petal cocktails.
One of our favorite recipes for a prosecco-rose cocktail follows:
makes one cup
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 cup dried (organic, pesticide-free) rose petals (or 2 cups fresh, organic and pesticide-free)
1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
Begin by making a simple syrup by combining sugar and water in a small saucepan, simmering and stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add rose petals and continue to simmer on low heat for five minutes or so. Add lemon juice and remove pan from heat. Allow mixture to steep for approximately 30 minutes, then pour through a fine-mesh strainer to remove solids. Store in the refrigerator.
2 tablespoons rose syrup (recipe above)
prosecco (or champagne)
Pour rose syrup into the bottom of a champagne flute and then slowly fill the remainder of the glass with prosecco.
