FLOWER POWER SOUR – To Bee or Not to Bee 🐝 : Mixology

Hey folks! So every month there’s a challenge within the YouTube cocktail community to create a cocktail with a specific theme. The theme for May was “Flower Power”. The rules were:

  1. Cocktail must use a floral ingredient.

  2. Cocktail must have a floral garnish.

  3. Use hashtag #flowerpower2021

  4. Enter by June 1st.

I wanted to share my entry with you guys. I was really happy with the way it came out. Admittedly it’s quite floral with some bold grassy notes as well, that probably isn’t for everyone. The sweetness and crushed ice help to make the drink a really nice bright summer sipper. Anyway guys, just wanted to share. It was a fun challenge. See recipe and video below. Cheers!
