The Rose Tyler
This drink captures Rose’s rough-around-the-edges feel while still maintaining the simple, refreshing, cheeky attitude that makes Rose so endearing.
1 oz. Vodka
2 oz. Sweet and Sour
Splash Grenadine (for color)
5-6 drops rose water on top
Add vodka, sweet and sour, and grenadine to a shaker filled with ice, shake well, strain into a stemmed cocktail glass or old fashioned glass filled with ice, add rose water, and serve. Optional lime garnish.
Rose Tyler is a companion portrayed by Billie Piper. A shop assistant in London, she first met the 9th incarnation of The Doctor right before he blew up her workplace. After saving her and the world from an Auton invasion controlled by the Nestene Consciousness, The Doctor invited her to travel with him. After initial reservations, she accepted, and the two roamed space and time together until she was eventually trapped in an alternate universe. Despite their brief time together, The Doctor’s relationship with Rose began a major shift within him, changing him from the lonely, angry soldier from the Time War into a softer, passionate fighter for peace. Rose traveled with the 9th and 10th incarnations of The Doctor over two seasons, from the first episode of the remount in 2005 through 2006, and returns in several episodes later in the series.
