Some of you may know that I love Spring and with Spring comes new cocktails! These particular cocktails are designed to usher in the first blossoms of springtime — A Rose, is a Rose, built with Grey Goose Interpreted by Ducasse and rose wine, and the jasmine infused Of Purity and Pear cocktail.

Both cocktails embody seamless fusions of feminine florals and sweet fruit juice sure to bring an end to those dreary winter months. Their bright appearances and refreshing aromas make them the perfect drink to sip out on the porch (or patio, or fire escape…) as the days grow longer.

A Rose, is a Rose and the Of Purity and Pear cocktail are the newest additions to one of 2018’s largest predicted cocktail trends: the bartender with the green thumb. Mixologists around the country are swapping out complicated recipes for simple plant-based ingredients to stir up fresh and natural libations. And in a year when consumers are trying to be good to themselves and good to the world, relaxing with a natural, boozy beverage isn’t a bad way to go about it.

As floral cocktails usher in the spring season on bar menus around the country, local Miami and Dallas customers can enjoy these cocktails at Bar Alter and the Adolphus hotel respectively. Please see the full recipes of the cocktails below:
