The final element to our Mother’s Day Tea: inspired cocktails courtesy of a wonderful new discovery, Pharmacie. Led by founder and drinkist Talmadge Lowe, Pharmacie brings a decidedly debonair element to any event – not to mention drinks that are equal parts innovative and delicious.
For our tea, Talmadge made two tasty, refreshing sips. The first: a vodka-based Sunday Punch, elevated with the addition of grapefruit juice and a rosemary simple syrup. The second: The Mademoiselle, an incredible champagne and gin concoction created especially for our event, with fresh limejuice and maraschino cherry liqueur.
Both cocktails were a huge hit, with presentation as noteworthy as the drinks themselves. I will definitely look to them for future get-togethers, as well as inspiration when searching for a new cocktail. XXJKE
