Now that we can’t drink and dine out, we have to get creative for date nights or whenever we are craving a fancy drink! Here are three flower-infused cocktail recipes you can attempt at home—you just need the right ingredients!
Chamomile Honey & Whiskey
If you can’t source some fresh organic chamomile flowers, no problem! Grab those chamomile tea bags you have stashed in your drawer, and brew some chamomile tea. While it steeps, add some of your favourite honey and bourbon. If you like it cold, shake it up with some ice cubes and you’ve got yourself a relaxing cup of chamomile honey & whiskey! Perfect for a mid-day treat (depending on how heavy you go with the bourbon 😉).

Similar to the previous recipe, but swap out the chamomile tea bags for some classic jasmine tea. Use either loose leaf tea or tea bags, whichever you prefer. Add honey or sugar, and shake it all up with some gin and ice cubes. Top it up with some sparkling water, and you’ve got yourself a glass of refreshing jasmine spritz! Sounds aaamazing for weekend brunches.

Lavender Bee’s Knees
Get your hands on some sprigs of organic lavender (not sprayed with chemicals). Combine them with hot water and honey to make a lavender honey syrup. Combine with some gin and lemon juice, and shake it all up with cubes of ice. There you have it, a luxurious drink that will get you ready for a good night’s slumber.
