Spring comes early in Southern California’s Mediterranean climate, and LA’s Greenbar Distillery knows how to make the most of it with an array of flower-based spirits. In addition to bringing its FRUITLAB Jasmine Liqueur back for a limited time, the organic craft distillery aims to please with other flower-focused flavors, such as its FRUITLAB Hibiscus Liqueur, BAR KEEP Lavender Bitters, and GRAND Poppy Amaro. All of these and more make flavorful additions to a diverse range of cocktails like the Hibiscus Margarita. This easy-to-make twist on the classic cocktail combines the liqueur with IXÁ Silver Tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup for a floral, citrus, and black tea flavor designed as a tribute to agua frescas. With so many tantalizing options, it’s easy to see why Greenbar Distillery is the largest supplier of organic spirits in the world.
