This Took My Spring Cocktails and Mocktails to a New Level

Spring Cocktails and Mocktails

Spring has sprung and it’s time to get in formation with these incredible spring cocktails and mocktails!  I am going to share a surprise tool to use to wow whoever you’re sharing a drink with, all of my mixology tools, and my favorite spring drink recipes.  Let’s go!

Okay, I am so excited to share my spring cocktails and mocktails “WOW” factor tool!

I use Silicone Ice Molds to infuse my ice cubes with Edible flowers!Spring Cocktails and Mocktails

I’m not sure if you have ever had an edible flower, but they make anything more beautiful!  So, why wouldn’t I put them in my spring drinks? Plus, nothing says “spring” like colorful flowers!

Some edible flowers include Petunia, Phlox, Hibiscus, Lavender, Zucchini flowers, Pansy, Honeysuckle, and so many more.  Don’t have edible flowers?  No problem! Herbs do a great job making any ice cube look fancy as well!

You simply put the flower or herbs in the silicone ice mold, add water, and let them freeze!  SO easy and so beautiful!

Next thing, here are the essential tools I use to make my gorgeous spring cocktails and mocktails:

You will need a couple of tools in order to make these drinks.  First, you will need a cocktail shaker.  A lot of them are metal, some have pretty designs, and some come with a multitude of cocktail tools if you want to get really fancy!

Second, you need some pretty glasses!  Who wants to have a gorgeous spring cocktail only to put it in an average, plastic cup?  Not me!  That’s why I have found some that I think you’ll love, check them out below!

Third, a lemon squeezer!  There is nothing more annoying than having to hand squeeze a lime or lemon wedge.  That’s where the lemon squeezer comes in handy.  It does the dirty work for you and more efficiently!
