Take a break with Sips by Sabrina
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing more I want in the Spring, than a light, refreshing drink. These drinks usually involve a lighter spirit, citrus, and hints of floral notes. To achieve this flavor, look no further than the Floral Gin Spritz. It’s everything you want on a warm, Summer afternoon.
I’m very lucky to be based in Knoxvillle, where Knox Whiskey Works has created the perfect floral liqueur-Fleur De Vie. This liqueur was created with rose buds, lavender, chrysanthemum, red clover tops, hibiscus, and sweetened with local honey. When mixed with gin, you achieve a beautiful botanical and floral blend. Add fresh lime juice and a bit of orange liqueur, and you’ve created the perfect party cocktail!
