Rose Pomegranate Martini (click through for the full recipe!)  To infuse your vodka with Numi Organic White Rose Tea, simply pour 1 cup vodka into a container and add one tea bag. Seal the container (mason jars work great for this!) and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in a cool dark spot.

When it’s done your vodka should be amber colored (like sweet tea). Sometimes floral drinks can get a little overwhelming and taste a little more on the potpourri side. But this tea was perfect for getting all the flavor I like without going too far.

NOTE: If you want your rose petals to be edible, be sure to buy organic roses. They’re not easy to find, but some of our local grocery and health food stores carry them from time to time.

Rose Pomegranate Martini (click through for the full recipe!)    1. Chop colored rose petals into tiny bits, like confetti.

2. Use a clean paint brush to brush honey onto one side of the rim of your glass. Be sure to keep the honey only on the outside of the glass, not the inside.

3-4. Press the honeyed rim onto the rose petal bits until it is completely covered with confetti!

Rose Pomegranate Martini (click through for the full recipe!)     In a shaker, combine 1.5 ounces pomegranate juice, 1.5 ounces vodka infused with white rose tea, half an ounce of sweet vermouth, 1 dash of each bitter and 3-5 broken mint leaves.

Shake with ice and pour into your pre-garnished cocktail glass. Enjoy!
