April Showers Cocktail
April showers bring May flowers, but in this case they also bring an April Showers Cocktail with edible flowers for garnish.
Gin, fresh lemon juice, agave pink grapefruit juice are perfectly blended to make this the perfect springtime drink.
The perfect springtime cocktail: There’s nothing better than sitting outdoors on a warm spring evening sipping on a refreshing cocktail with friends, family or both, as the warm sun is setting. This is THE drink you want to be doing this with.
For a lovely presentation, I used a 100% edible dianthus flower that I received my CSA farm box that month.
Serving options: This cocktail is a delicious balance of sweet and tart. If you like it sweeter, add a little more agave, if you like it more on the tart side, add a little more grapefruit juice.
Glasses: When it comes to your choice of glasses, you have choices. You don’t have to serve it in a martini or coupe glass, you can serve it over ice in a short glass.
Not a gin drinker? No problem, use your favorite vodka instead.
Is there really alcohol in this?
