It's 5 o'clock somewhere! When the weather gets warm and sunny, we love a good fruity and floral cocktail. And our infused sugars are just the thing to make them pop!
Spring Fruit & Flora Cocktail
Here at Well Seasoned Table we love a good happy hour cocktail! We may be an Appalachian spice shop, but we enjoy a relaxing afternoon beverage just like anyone else. Our infused sugars made such dreamy additions to your favorite cocktail recipe.
For this recipe, we used two of our farm-fresh infused sugars. The Mountain Flora Sugar is a fruity and floral blend of apple, persimmon, lavender, rose, and much more. On top of being a gorgeous rose color, it's bursting with flavor. Our newest addition to our infused sugar line-up is the Lemon Meringue Sugar, found in our Cocktail/Mocktail Sampler Tin. It features plenty of lemon flavor, a pop of color from Appalachian-grown calendula flowers, and sustainably wildcrafted sumac berries (also known as Appalachian Lemonade). These two combine to be tart, fruity, floral, and so fresh!
