We spotted this beauty of a cocktail – or I should say mocktail that is begging for some vodka – tucked inside this beautiful party. We, of course, had to have it so the lovely Buffy Dekmar & Simply Charming Socials sent us the recipe that she originally found on Use Real Butter. And thank goodness for such a good recipe because we’ve already made it twice and are about to start the next batch.
