THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME

A toast to the little things. Among all the milestones, the big events and the general chaos of life, we often forget to appreciate the simple pleasures. This cocktail is inspired by things I enjoy regularly: gardening, a cup of tea, seasonal fruits and good cooking, and the moments they create that bring joy: the smell of jasmine flowers when they bloom, catching up with friends over a brew, the first Summer fruits of the season and cooking a meal with a loved one.
