Lilac Lemon Fizz

Lilac Lemon Fizz @themerrythoughtWe decided to start a “Mocktail Monday” series here on the blog. It’s one of our favorite posts to do because they’re so tasty and we can all get together and work on them as a group. Plus the family doesn’t mind being around to sample them! To kick it off, we’re going to be sharing a few floral cocktails throughout the month of June. First up is this sweet little lilac drink! Did you know lilacs are edible?!

1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Lilac Syrup (Instructions below)
1/2 tbsp Fresh Orange Juice
Dash of Bitters
Top off with Sparkling Mineral Water
*Garnished with lemon and frozen lilac ice cubes

To make the Lilac Syrup:
Combine 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup lilac flowers (no stem or greens) in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let it simmer for a couple minutes. Strain out lilacs and let mixture cool before using.

    Sherrie Castellano (@withfoodandlove) - Lilacs are my favorite flower, my favorite scent, my favorite everything. They remind me of my childhood, where our yard was lined with them and in the spring breeze would carry their bouquet through the walls of my home. I had no idea they were edible, my life is now forever changed, I cannot wait to get my hands on some lilacs and make this amazingness.

    And the photography is beautiful; so much awesome happening here!!
