Lavender Lemonade Mimosa


Continuing with our theme of holiday-focused cocktails, Alex and I took a cue from the upcoming Easter weekend and decided to come up with something special to sip with brunch. Since we all know that no Sunday brunch is complete without champagne, we opted for a Lavender Lemonade Mimosa. Bubbly and refreshing with delicate floral notes thanks to the lavender tea syrup, this is the perfect cocktail for celebratory Sunday mornings, no matter what the occasion is.
