A Beautiful Lady Violette Cocktail Garnished with an Edible Pansy

I love garnishing things with flowers – in fact I eat flowers every day, really! You can decorate anything you want to eat or drink with an edible flower.

I propose a toast to spring with a flower cocktail. Today is the first day!

Why not give a welcoming spring cocktail party ~ for a chance to wear your vintage clothes and gloves and enjoy some flowery drinks!

You can garnish any cocktail with a flower or make up one of the popular ones using floral liquors such as Creme de Violet or Parfait Amour.
