Lilac vodkas

Lilac vodkas are pretty and simple. No matter what, save a stem of lilacs for the garnish. The added scent boost makes all the difference.

Rhubarb Bee's Knees with tequila

The original recipe does call for gin, but I happened to have tequila on hand (OK, and I’m not much of a gin drinker). Use what you will, as long as you can highlight the rhubarb!

I had to make a second batch, and I certainly waited for it to cool before I transferred it to a different jar, but my socks are still sticking to the floor.

Chlementhymes with bourbon

The less ripe the clementines are, the better. The simple syrup in this recipe adds lots of sweetness fast, so tart clementines do a nice job of balancing things.

Thyme simple syrup

You can use this recipe to make many kinds of herbal simple syrups. Other types I’d like to try: rosemary, lavender and basil. I already tried mint in this mint juleps recipe. Once you’ve got the simple syrup made, you can add it to all kinds of cocktails. I’ll be sharing one that uses fresh clementine juice this week. UPDATE: Here’s the recipe for bourbon clementhymes.
