If Spring were a cocktail then it would be Vernal Season! This low ABV cocktail entry is built entirely on PostModern Spirits floral and botanical liqueurs. Featuring the Subrosa Liqueur – a distillation of orris root and Chamomile Liqueur – a distillation of chamomile flowers, lavender flowers, elderflowers and apricots, and paired with the tart, sweetness of the Floral Shrub, this cocktail offers full spring flavors with a lighter drinking experience.
