After falling in love with a fabulous cocktail made with rose and jalapeño at the SLS Beverly Hills on our anniversary trip (see some live footage of me drinking that very cocktail in this video), I just knew I had to try to recreate something similar once we got home.
Ideally I would have found some simple rose flavored syrup like this one that we used own, but I came across this $10 bottle of Jo Snow Rose Cardamom syrup from our local Binnys and was intrigued by the flavor combo. While this isn't what I originally wanted, it still made for a great cocktail. Heat from the jalapeño spice from the cardamom and sweetness from the rose all come together to make for a unique taste that is sure to impress your next dinner guest. You can also substitute a real cardamom pod and regular rose syrup similar to this cocktail.
