What a THRILL it is to get to team up with some of my local favorites for a fun little supplemental spring menu at The Briar Patch in The Town of Livingston! Spring Garden Mixology is available for a limited time only, as a celebration of sunshine and warmer weather! We had the most fun coming up with our springy little cocktails and cannot wait for you to try them!! The whole idea for this came from a little brainstorming session with my girl Carly, owner of Bellini Blooms, then Nicole and Mary Leslie were the first ones to pop to mind when we thought about friends who are warm, happy, bright, sunny, joyful, flowery, and all the lovely springy things!
We want this menu to be a bright spot. A conversation starter. A connection amongst friends. Warmth to the heart. Joy to the tastebuds. Simply put, we hope these drinks bring a smile to your face! Now, let’s get to know the faces behind each of the drinks! Keep scrolling!

BELLINI BLOOMS // created with @bellini.blooms
Celebrate the wild flower child in all of us! We took your typical peach and prosecco Bellini and embellished it with with floral goodness! A touch of elderflower, a hint of rosewater, a twist of blood orange, and a topping of fresh flowers. It’s almost too pretty to drink! (Key word: almost!)
Sure do love these Bellini gals! Full disclosure: one ingredient changed between photo shoot and launch, so this drink will look a little bit different when you order it, but it will taste absolutely fabulous!
Be sure to give @bellini.blooms a follow on Instagram! These girls are beyond creative and use more than just fresh flowers in their arrangements. Carly and her team are extremely creative and I absolutely LOVE getting to work with them! Their feed is as BEAUTIFUL as they are!

THE SOUTHERN CHARM // created with @leliassoutherncharm
This St. Germain based cocktail has a bit of charm added with muddled strawberries, an easy botanical gin, and hints of lemon, pomegranate, cherry, and orange zest. Topped with a spear of fresh strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar, gee whiz, I guess we all have a bit of southern charm in us, don’t we?!
Nicole, the face of @leliassoutherncharm on Instagram, is just about the most delightful person I know! She’s so positive and encouraging and creative and has style for miles!! Her handle is named after her grandmother Lelia, who oozed with good old fashioned southern charm! Nicole carries on her legacy so well! She is one of the best follows on IG- trust me!

ONE THING LEADS TO A MOTHER // created with @mississippimomma
Light, crisp, and floral, this vodka drink is highlighted with honeysuckle, grapefruit, and topped off with sparkling rose. Bring your fellow mamas out and feel refreshed with this taste of Spring in a glass!
Mary Leslie, also known as @mississippimomma on IG, is a nurse and is just the sweetest thing! She is passionate about educating new mamas and those who have new mamas in their lives with beautiful content that is also incredibly informative!

HIVE AND MIGHTY // created with @laurel_at_thehive
This ginger and orange infused bourbon drink is brightened up by tiki bitters, zesty ginger beer, and the sweetest local honey. Gather your hive, enjoy some mighty fine drinks, and bee sure to celebrate these longer days with lots of YAYs!
