The arrival of spring evokes thoughts of so many good things—energizing sunshine, bright colors, warmer weather, and blooming flowers, to name a few. There’s nothing like sitting outside on a breezy spring day, sipping a refreshing cocktail and enjoying all of those happy things.
To celebrate the season, we asked Katy Galluccio, bar manager at The Parched Pig in Palm Beach Gardens, to create spring cocktails using edible flora.
Pictured here is a deliciously cheery cocktail she calls Butterfly Juice. “Inspired by the classic tiki cocktail the Saturn, I swapped passion fruit for juicy, fresh grapefruit and used dried butterfly pea flowers for subtle, earthy flavor and color,” says Galluccio. “Hendrick’s Summer Solstice gin enhances the floral component of the drink and lends its botanical profile overall to the two-toned cocktail.”
