Spring / Summer

Cocktail of the Week - "Cherry Blossom"

The Cherry Blossom cocktail pictured above was one of the signature cocktails I created for the spring/summer cocktail menu at the Buddha Buddha Martini Bar and Cocktail Lounge in May of 2013. This cocktail is versatile and can be enjoyed anytime once the weather gets nice and sunny. The Cherry Blossom is perfect to be sipped outdoors. This is one of the many cocktails people can enjoy for their special party or event and it is very easy to make at home. One of the special features of this cocktail is the use of lime cordial (my recipe below).

The aroma and distinctive flavor of this flavor works well before-dinner, during dinner, or after-dinner. This cocktail is consistent with Asian-inspired cocktails that are light, floral, and refreshing. Perfect for the spring months when flowers are blooming.

If you ever walked in to an American bar and asked for an Asian cocktail you would probably get a blank stare from the bartender. It’s a pretty vague request, but so is asking for an “American” cocktail. If you say that you would like a cocktail that uses Asian ingredients or flavors, such as ginger, jasmine, or lychee, you may experience the same result.
