Refreshing: Summer Cocktails & Flowers!

Picture this.. you’re on holiday and you’re sitting by the pool, the sun is beating down on you; what could possibly be more refreshing than an ice cold cocktail? To celebrate the arrival of summer, we’ve created beautiful bouquets inspired by iconic summer cocktails.


Summer Bouquets Inspired By Summer Cocktails

We have taken our latest inspiration from three of the most classic summer cocktails you can find abroad or in every fancy cocktail bar. We have carefully chosen the flowers that we feel represent these classics and want to introduce you to our Bellini, Mojito and Margarita bouquets!

A classic Italian cocktail, pictured above is an orginal bellini. A Bellini cocktail is a mixture of Prosecco sparkling wine and peach purée or nectar. It originates from Venice, Italy. You can find different flavours of this cocktail, strawberry, blueberry, mango or whichever fruit you want to try! This was the inspiration for our Bellini bouquet, an exquisite summer cocktail indeed.

MOJITO2 summer cocktails

A mojito is as refreshing as it gets! It is the summer cocktail that inspired our Mojito bouquet. Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball. Usually, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint.

MARGARITA2 summer cocktails

The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The drink is served shaken with ice, blended with ice, or without ice. Originating from Mexico, the margarita was invented or ‘mixed together’ for the first time by a man who was allergic to every alcoholic spirit, except tequila of course! A perfect inspiration for our zesty Margarita bouquet.
