Rose Hip Vodka

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 liter

Roses begin to produce hips around mid-July, after the petals fall. The tangy hips are ready to pick when they turn a fiery red-orange color. David Page gathers them along the bluffs and beaches on Long Island.

To make martinis, simply chill the vodka very well and serve it in martini glasses, garnished with fragrant wild or organic rose petals.

  1. 12 fresh rose hips, halved lengthwise
  2. 1 bottle (1 liter) vodka
  1. Add the rose hips to the bottle of vodka. Alternatively, pour the vodka into a large glass jar and add the rose hips. Seas the bottle or jar and store in a dark place for at least 3 weeks, or until the vodka becomes delicately flavored and colored by the rose hips.
