Limoncello Cocktails

The Prettiest Pastel Cocktails for Spring ~ they’re in every color of the rainbow and almost too pretty to sip, but don’t let that hold you back, they’re perfect for your next spring fling.  The best part?  You can match your drink to your outfit!

 


 

 

Aviation

The aviation is a vintage gin cocktail that’s gone in and out of fashion over the years.  It gets its gorgeous lavender hue from Créme de Violette, a liqueur made from Alpine violets :)

Rhubarb Elderflower Gin Cooler

Made with rhubarb simple syrup (you can make it yourself!) elderflower cordial, and gin.  I love the rosemary garnish.

The Last Word

A gorgeous concoction of Chartreuse, Luxardo, lime, and, again, gin!  You won’t find this color in too many cocktails.

    Gorgeous pastel drinks.
    Making the aviation as soon as all ingredients arrive. And again for summer birthday party!
    Expensive indeed but worth it!

      I think the violet liqueur would come in handy for other things…maybe flavoring and coloring a buttercream?

        Yes, a springy hue, floral aroma, added to butter cream frosting for a tea party and sandwich cakes.
        Hibiscus, lemon tea, sunbathing and an outdoor shower.
        That’s the plan.
        Sue, thanks for sharing, again. Every recipe I have tried from your site has been a tasty success!

    So pretty-wish I could try all of them. Because of medical conditions I don’t drink alcoholic beverages anymore. Any pretty mock cocktail recipes?

      Great idea Sandra, I’ll work on that, a mocktail round-up would be fun.
