Spring Cocktail

Spring Cocktail

I love playing with seasonal scents & flavors. This time of year makes me crave all things floral & lemon. There is something so fresh & crisp about these flavors that reminds me of warm nights with friends & feeling the sunshine on my face. The only thing better than florals & lemons would have to be combining them, & I have a spring cocktail that does just that!

Spring Cocktail

Here’s What You Need For This Spring Cocktail:

Your favorite lemonade (mine is the Simply Lemonade)

Ice cubes

A lemon

A few sprigs of thyme

1/2-1 shot of gin depending on how strong you like your drinks

1/2-1 shot of elderflower liquor

I’m gonna be honest, I don’t like really strong drinks. I like to have the option to have more than one without feeling it the next day. You know what I’m saying? So I’m going to share with you how I make this drink, but if you have more of a heavy hand, feel free to make it as strong as you’d like!

Let Me Make You A Drink

Start with a fun glass. I chose to use my mason jars because they just go with the warmer weather in my mind. Fill the glass about 1/3 of the way with ice. Then, I add 1/2 shot of Citadelle & 1/2 shot of St Elder Elderflower Liquor to the ice & top it off with Simply Lemonade, leaving just a little bit of room at the top. Next, I squeeze half a lemon into the glass, making it taste extra fresh. Then for garnish, I like to add a few sprigs of thyme, a slice of lemon in the drink, & a lemon slice on the rim because it looks so cute! There is something so satisfying about a pretty cocktail, & I think this one takes the cake!

I think another reason why I love this cocktail in particular is because lemons make me think of our upcoming honeymoon to the Amalfi Coast! Give me all the lemon things! Including this dreamy Lemoncello candle I’m obsessing over at the moment. If you are a lemon lover like me, you need this candle!
