With the blustery cold of winter as merely a memory, it is high time to relax and enjoy the fluttery excitement that comes with spring. What better way to celebrate than to give a toast to the season with one of these spring themed libations?
In the winter I want to drink cocktails that envelope me like a hand knitted sweater. But when the weather gets warmer my tastes bloom along with the flowers.
With fragrant flavors like elderflower, ginger, mint, berries, and cucumber, these six spring cocktails will inspire your taste buds to sit up and sing! I like to mix one up on a Friday evening and sit out on my front porch and watch the beach goers walk by after a day at the shore.
“The addition of the elderflower cordial gives this drink a decidedly feminine flavor which pairs perfectly with the lime juice.”
“All you need are 3 ingredients, and you get all of the goodness of a classic mint julep, but also a perfectly sweet and fizzy spin.”
“Tequila and grapefruit are a marriage made in… a cocktail glass!”
“In the world of cocktails, the smash is historically a drink that called for mint, a lump of sugar, ice and the spirit of your choice.”
“One part blackberry syrup, one part sparkling wine, with a little bit of love sprinkled in for good measure. It’s pink, it’s sparkly, it’s the perfect concoction for spring.”
“There are several components making this Mojito quite possibly one of the best cocktails I have ever had., and the part that really makes it amazing? Farmers market fresh white peaches infused into rum. So good. Like amazingly good.”
