Cocktail Series  //  Spring Buzz

Inspired by lots of the wonderful menus we create here at the studio, we're going to be sharing our favourite boozy recipe with you each month, bought to life with illustrations and lettering by Lamplighter founder, Chiara Perano. For May, we've picked The Spring Buzz.  It's a delicious iced tea toddy, with sweet honey and lemon, elderflower and a Whiskey kick. Warming for the anticipation of summer, and a hint of floral as our gardens bloom. Spring in a cup! 

Recipe, for two. 

  1. Brew 1 camomile tea for 5 minutes. Remove bag, stir in 2 teaspoons of honey, then allow to cool.
  2. Over ice, pour 30ml Whiskey and 10ml St. Germain and stir. Add in your tea and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice. Garnish with a slice of lemon if desired. Repeat with your second glass, find a spot to devour your warming Spring Buzz and enjoy. 

Thank you Broma Bakery for the original recipe! If you're cocktail and lettering lovers like us, make sure you are following Chiara on Instagram for the monthly moonshine inspiration.
