The Blume
September Soother

Mix equal parts Blume Honey Water Wild Blueberry, club soda and lemonade. Add vodka to taste. Garnish with fresh mint. Enjoy! 

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!

The "Full Blume"

Whether gathering friends 'round the tree or ringing in the New Year, this lovely libation celebrates that we #liveinfullblume together. The edible hybiscus flower is the dressy piece-de-resistance! To make: Use 1/3 Vanilla Citrus Blume Honey Water (very chilled) to 2/3 Rose Prosecco, and drop in an edible hybiscus flower.  Hybiscus flowers are available in stores around the U.S. or special order from The Wild Flower Hybiscus Co.  Chin! Chin!

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).
