Spring is here! Flower are blooming, birds are chirping and I'm thinking of light refreshing cocktails.
Everyone knows I am a huge fan of champagne and of course it is super refreshing. What better way to celebrate the bubbly than with a Champagne Jubilation.
1 oz lemon vodka
2 tsp, Blue Agave Syrup
Muddle lemons and blue agave
Add ice and lemon vodka
Strain into champagne flute and top with champagne
Garnish with lemon slice
I seriously need one or fifteen of these!
Next up on our spring fling is The Garden Tonic.
4 mint leaves
2 dashes Celery bitters
2 teaspoons St. Germain Elderflower Liquer
1 1/2 ounces Gin
3 ounces tonic water
Fresh lime wedge
Muddle the mint leaves and the bitters
Pour in the liqueur and the gin
Top with tonic water and stir
Garnish with a lime wedge
It's like a little garden party in your mouth without the clean up and rude guest.
The last on our list is an oldie but a goody. It has been around forever and was very popular with starlets in the 1930's. The Orange Blossom Cocktail may seem a little off with the egg whites but it really takes the bitter taste of of the drink.
1 dash of orange bitters
1/2 teaspoon of egg whites
1 oz of gin
1 dash of grenadine
1 oz orange juice
Mix all ingredients, shake well and served in a medium glass.
There ya go, a little spritzer to sip while watching the flowers grow. Ahhh spring-you've won my heart.
