colorful summer cocktails with flowers?! what could be better. they’d make the perfect start to a dinner party or a sweet addition to a weekend brunch or shower. cheers, friends!
one note regarding the flowers – we highly recommend that you use organic flowers when using them as edibles or garnish for your food and drink. and, we did not eat these flowers, just used them as pretty accents…
