Drink Some Flowers: Floral Cocktail Roundup

Rose Martini from Design Sponge

Now that it’s Spring, gorgeous flowers are popping up everywhere. So why not in your drinks, too? Floral liqueurs like St Germain and creme de violette are great in champagne, but there are plenty of other ways to add some delicate blossoms to your cocktails.

Bichon Frisé ~ You know what sounds delicious? A Greyhound, made with vodka and grapefruit juice, with a little elderflower liqueur.

Hibiscus Tequila Cocktail ~ Hibiscus and tequila are a fun pairing, but the dashes of habanero hot sauce make it a truly intriguing cocktail.

Rose Martini ~ This beautiful cocktail features rosewater and white creme de cacao for an elegant and delicate combination.

Delft Blue ~ A doubly floral drink with elderflower and violet liqueurs, two of the most popular ways to get flowers into cocktails.

Elderflower & Lemon Sparkling Sipper ~ Sparkling wine and elderflower syrup are a can’t-miss pairing that’s great for brunch. You could use an elderflower liqueur, an elderflower syrup from the store (Ikea has one), or make your own elderflower syrup.
