Chef Rick's Tips:

Tun this simple template into a winter drink instead: Forego the roses and add juniper berries to ice (about 10 grams).Create a delicous and savory gin and tonic, perfect for a steak dinner.

Shake up the liquors and guests! Present this drink without the honey, and let guests pour warm honey over the ice. The melting ice will surely be a fun experience.

Serve this alongside an appetizer for brunch. Adjust serving size to a pitcher ofsangria, and let guests pour their own flower infused cocktail.  Substitute peach Schnapps for Grand Marnier or Triple Sec, and infuse heated orange peels (3-4 grams) into the drink. Include some chopped up fruit (20 grams).
