Floralia Gimlet

Floralia Gimlet sour cocktail with vodka, mead, simple syrup, lemon juice, and yuzu juice

The Floralia Gimlet is the result of a collaboration between bartender Torrey Bell-Edwards at Honey in Brooklyn, NY and Arley Marks, founder of the Enlightenment Wines shop that carries Floralia mead, a local Brooklyn brand infused with lavender and herbs.

Even with a standard mead, the Floralia Gimlet is a gorgeous sour cocktail (albeit not really a Gimlet at all). Vodka is a brilliant choice for the base spirit, preserving the flavor of the mead while cutting its sweetness. And the combination of lemon juice with just a few drops of yuzu is delightful, imparting a fresh, herby note alongside the crispness of lemon. It’s a perfect drink to herald Spring, or just to use up a bottle of decent mead.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
