Our Blossoms+Bourbon line inspired this Blossoms+Bourbon Cocktail. The line is fresh, clean, and bright with citrus and geranium bourbon. We thought it would be a great idea to come up with a drink in its honor and created the Blossoms+Bourbon Cocktail.

Blossoms+Bourbon Cocktail

Orange blossom tipples are similar to the modern Screwdriver, but a little more special in our opinion. Our Bee-Inspired version takes the cake and is a perfect addition to brunches and weekend get-togethers.

Fruit-filled drinks are perfect in warm weather. They are refreshing and make a beautiful presentation. Try this Fruity Bee Collins, perfectly timed for spring.

Bee Collins Cocktail

Tom Collins cocktail is a classic from long ago. The cocktail’s base is made with gin, lemon juice, sugar and carbonated water. Our fruity take on this classic cocktail is what we call the Fruity Bee Collins Cocktail. Bee Collins is made with Eastern Shore Honey instead of processed sugars and fresh summer fruits that’ll really put you in the, should we say, spirit!
