by | Cocktail Friday, Made


Erin of Betty May Vintage

We were so smitten with the gorgeous drinks we shared in our modern bridal shower editorial, that we had to ask the leading ladies at Betty May Vintage to share their recipes with us! We’re so delighted to share the Betty May ladylike version of a classic gin cocktail!

  • 60 mls gin (We used Hendricks)
  • 1 teaspoon rose syrup
  • Sparkling rosé wine (chilled)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • A dash of pearl dust shimmer
  • Cucumber slices
  • Lime slices
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Fresh mint
  • Fresh viola flowers


  1. Add gin, rose syrup, lime juice to a cocktail shaker and shake well
  2. Fill your glass with ice
  3. Pour the shaken cocktail and top with sparkling rosé wine
  4. Sprinkle pearl dust shimmer
  5. Add cucumber and lime slices
  6. Garnish with rosemary, mint, and viola flowers.


Add to a glass tumbler (ours have been served in our Betty May Vintage mid century tumblers over ice with a pink and white stripe straw from Ruby Rabbit).
