Warm Your Soul
Our Ginger Zest is absolutely delicious when heated to a simmer, and sipped like a tea! At Blume HQ, it warms our spirits, soothes colds, sore throats, and tummy aches too. If you dash a little artisanal rum into it at night, you've got a whole new way to snuggle up to winter. (Tip: don't boil or microwave - just simmer the old fashioned way).
The Blume Beekeper
Mix 4 oz of Vanilla Citrus Blume Honey Water in a small shaker with 1 oz of of Gin, (try to use a very juniper-y gin; we like St. George). Splash 3-4 dashes of Aromatic Bitters (5 by 5's was smashing in this mix). Pour into a low-ball glass with a single ice sphere. Flame an orange peel for that smoky beekeeper effect, and wipe the glass rim with the peel. Makes 3 - 4 depending on glass size. Bee-ware, they go down smoothly!
