A Sweet Honey Rose cocktail to get your weekend started the right way.
Okay, real talk. Who else needs this weekend?
I SO need this weekend. It’s not even that I’m getting to relax this weekend, but I just really need this weekend. I also really need one of these Sweet Honey Rose cocktails. They’re sweet, SO floral, and downright tasty.
The start of spring has me wanting EVERYTHING floral. Like floral desserts, floral cocktails, floral snacks..the list goes on. It may still be near freezing temps here in Boston, but the first day of Spring has come and gone and it means that warmer weather is hopefully on the horizon.
If it could just be floral everything all the time, I’d be happy. I’d fill my room with freshly cut flowers, I’d have floral recipes on deck each week – it might be a bit of overkill, but I’d welcome it with open arms.
While that may be entirely over the top, I DO have a floral cocktail for you to enjoy this weekend! It’s got honey, botanical gin, and fresh rose buds – just to name a few ingredients. It’s easy to make, to boot! All you have to do is shake everything up in a tumbler and pour it over ice. Talk about an easy cocktail, right?
