To mark the beginning of spring, we have rounded up several floral themed cocktails. But don’t let the pretty flowers make you believe that these drinks are any less potent. Daisies can be quite intoxicating.
1 oz violet liqueur
1 oz gin
1 oz vodka
1/4 oz ginger liqueur
1 dash Scrappy’s Lavender Bitters
Place all liquids into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well for 30 seconds and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with lavender sprigs.
3 oz Vodka
3/8 oz St Germain elderflower liqueur
3/8 oz lemon juice
1/5 oz apricot preserves
Add all ingredients, other than the flowers, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until ice cold, and double strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with the daisies.
2 oz tequila
1 oz lime juice
3/4 oz triple Sec
150g chopped cantaloupe
Pinch of Chile de árbol powder
Muddle cantaloupe, agave nectar and triple sec in a shaker. Add ice and remaining ingredients, excluding garnish, and shake for at least 10 seconds. Double strain into a chilled glass, and garnish with the flower.
