The famous Philadelphia Flower Show starts this weekend (and runs March 1-9). To celebrate, Art in the Age has crafted two Flower Show-inspired signature cocktails that they’ll be serving at the show on March 2 (look for them in the Grand Hall from 4-6pm). Art in the Age incorporated their organic liquors into a delicious blackberry lemonade and a lavender cup.
- 2 parts RHUBARB tea
- 3 blackberries
- a few basil leaves
- sparkling lemonade
Directions: In rocks glass, muddle blackberries, a few basil leaves, and RHUBARB. Add ice and top with sparkling lemonade. Stir to combine.
- 2 parts SAGE
- 2 tsp. Lavender Honey Syrup*
- Splash of club soda
- Lemon slice
Directions: Fill a tall glass with ice. Add SAGE and lavender honey syrup. Top with club soda, stir, and garnish with lemon
*To make Lavender Honey Syrup: Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of honey, and 3 sprigs of lavender in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until combined. Cover, remove from heat, and let steep for 25 minutes. Remove lavender and store syrup in a glass bottle. Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
If you can’t make it to to the show to sample these libations on the 2nd, some local restaurants are also serving the signature libations: Revolution House, Jones, and Smokin’ Betty’s. And if you can’t make it there, whip them up at home!
Cheers to a very happy weekend!
