Cocktail Trend: Flowers in Our Booze?
To celebrate the opening of the Philadelphia Flower Show and the current Van Gogh exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Granite Hill Restaurant is offering a floral-themed Chef’s Table tonight featuring menu items such as quiche lorraine with edible pansies (PANSIES, not panties).
But what really caught my eye is the Van Gogh cocktail. The drink in question is a mixture of Bombay Sapphire gin, crème de Violette, lemon juice and simple syrup, with, yes — a flower floating on top.
Have you ever had flower cocktails, ESers? Yay or nay?
I vote yes, because, for the love of god, IT’S ALCOHOL.
