Wishing For Spring With This Pansy Floral Martini

By February 23, 2024 No Comments


martinis anyone?

TGIF! The storms in California this week have left me feeling a bit blue and longing for spring sunshine and warmth. Until then, I’ve decided to bring a bit of spring into my kitchen. I’m excited to whip up a pansy floral martini to kick off the weekend. Doesn’t it sound delightful? It’s made with pansy simple syrup, vodka, and fresh lemon juice. In our house, martinis are straightforward, but this new floral addition is worth the extra effort. I can’t wait to mix it up and savor every sip. Cheers to the weekend!
