Flower Sour Cocktail

It’s been a while since I crafted a new cocktail! Are you excited? Because I am. Especially since I’m not a huge sour cocktail fan (aside from margaritas) and I super love this one. It’s the perfect spring blend of spices, florals, and lemony spring goodness. 

My husband always like for me to explain how I came up with my cocktails. Honestly, I’m not really sure what I was thinking when I pulled this one together. Mostly that I have this bottle of white rum that I never use and I wanted something a little different. Let’s just say I got a little lucky with this one. 

It’s been nonstop gross winter here in Colorado, but I’m hoping that will all clear up soon and we can finally get to warm weather. I’m really looking forward to sitting in my backyard by the fire pit and sipping on some Flower Sours for Shavuot. 

What are you looking forward to most this season? If you’ve got the same springy goals, tag me on Instagram so I can share the good vibes with you!
