This oh so pretty dessert cocktail is refreshingly sweet and deceptively simple – the perfect recipe to impress guests with the rose fairy floss garnish. Head Bartender Scott Murdoch from newly launched modern Turkish restaurant, Yagiz has created this impressive ‘Turkish Delight,’ which sees rose petal gin, creme de cacao, lemon, vanilla and rosewater combine with egg white, to create a zesty and floral beverage. Garnished with rose fairy floss and a dusting of pistachio powder, it’s ideal as a summer aperitivo or after-dinner cocktail.

Ms Zigzag says: Anyone organising a bridal shower? These are a must for the celebrations.
