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…

rosewater lemonade

• 2 tbs rosewater water
• 1 tbs simple syrup
• 1/2 cup lemonade
• 2 oz vodka

combine all ingredients over ice and shake. top with rose for garnish. yield 1 serving.

chamomile whiskey

• 1 tbs honey
• 1 chamomile tea bag
• 1.5 oz whiskey
• 1 cup hot water

steep tea bag in hot water. stir in honey and let sit until cool. combine with whiskey over ice. add fresh chamomile for garnish. yield 1 serving.


• 1 cup grapefruit juice
• 1.5 oz gin
• 0.5 oz simple syrup

combine all ingredients over ice and mix. add flower (these are diantus) for garnish. yield 1 serving.

    SO pretty! I think it’s worth nothing that although you aren’t necessarily eating them, it’s really important they are pesticide free as any chemicals will seep into the drinks! I know you mentioned they should be organic, but thought it was worth saying why, as people might just assume that you are just promoting an organic lifestyle.
