Vibrant green trees and pastel petals. A chilly but optimistic breeze. Shoes without socks (finally!). Lighter jackets. There’s no denying: Spring’s got us Tickled Pink.
So we’ve dreamed up a super-floral version of the Moonlight cocktail (which is itself a common variation on the classic Aviation). Ticked Pink gets its blush from a mix of violet and orange liqueurs, extra herbal punch from botanical gin, bright acidity from lemon and lime juices, and soft aroma from a light spray of chamomile bitters. It’s the drink we’re sipping out on the front stoop during a surprisingly warm (no jacket!) evening…
