Spring Cocktails – Cherry Blossom Cocktail

Spring Cocktails 4 1

Super-Lazy Ways to Welcome in Spring – Part 4
Alfresco Soirees + Cocktails

Spring is all about floral. It’s pretty. It’s pastel. It’s picture-perfect. This is no secret. We see it in decor and design. But imbibing the flowers? That’s a little bit new, isn’t it? 😉

Flowers and fruit make the perfect natural adornments for your dining table and decor. Image source from left: mymodernmetdotcom, rampantcuisine.com, and joburgsouthdotgetitonlinedotcodotza.

We’re early adopters here at Zanui + we’re enamoured with the delicate femininity of cherry blossom. That makes two reasons to indulge in Absolut’s Cherry Blossom Cocktail.

Add the fact that it’s Friday into the mix and we’re powerless to resist such deliciousness. No Celery French 65 Cocktails are going to cut the mustard at the end of a long week – refreshing as they might be! Apologies, Martha Stewart!

We love this fusion of squashes and Heritage roses by David Austin, the decadent colours of fruit and these divine Hibiscus & Ginger Champagne Cocktails. Image source from left: apartmenttherapydotcom, mmbarsdotcomdotau and spoonforkbacondotcom

Incorporating flowers and greenery when you dress your table-top adds a lovely organic touch to your event. We love a little bit of vintage lace paired with roses – perfect for a Royal Albert champagne or tea party – or a Mediterranean blue and white themed dinner with cocktails as apéritif.

What’s your fave aesthetic? Shop our range of dinner sets, servingware and glassware to create the perfect ambience.
