Like a macaroni necklace… but better
Sure, you could give your mom flowers this Sunday, to honor her and all that she’s done for you on Mother’s Day… or you could whip up an incredible brunch while she leisurely sips a really good cocktail. Your choice. Tamworth Garden Flora Gin, the latest offering from our friends at Tamworth Distilling, is like the macaroni necklace of your youth, but way better… or perhaps it’s closer akin to the flowers you planned to have delivered, but just couldn’t decide on a bouquet? Either way, this floral-infused spirit will make the perfect centerpiece for your Mother’s Day plans. Imbued with last summer’s wildflowers, Flora gives off the aroma of lemon verbena, geranium and grapefruit, making it the perfect base for a crisp and refreshing greyhound cocktail, and the ideal drink to enjoy with the woman who gave you life while you pry family secrets from her (just kidding… but really). Combined with rosemary-infused simple syrup — which makes a gorgeous gift all its own — this beautiful cocktail is spring in a glass, no April showers in sight. Serve it with Vegan Strawberry Icebox Cake and Strawberry Basil + Ricotta breakfast Tartines for an afternoon feast fit for a queen.
