Sometimes a run of the mill cocktail just won't due. So set down that vodka tonic and make room for a beverage kicked into high gear. From fruity to savory, enter two craft cocktails, dreamed up by Kelsey Rae Designs and Plum & Oak Photo in collaboration with Waters Catering that will surely fit the bill. First up, we have our eyes set on the Lavanda-sita. And the ever dapper Lorenzo is coming up next!
From Plum and Oak Photo... Kelsey Rae Designs and I love the movement towards craft cocktails with natural and seasonal ingredients. As part of the latest feature in our collaboration together called #ThePrettyProject, Kelsey and I teamed up with the lovely Terri Wedell of Waters Catering to create His + Hers signature craft cocktails that feature late spring/early summer ingredients in an approachable way. Don't be dismayed by the use of lavender essential oil and black sea salt! These ingredients are not as difficult to find as they sound, nor were they hard to use! In fact, this recipe is quite easy and they are guaranteed to make for a memorable cocktail.
