Spring is not far from view. Blossoming flowers and warm sunshine awaits. Today is the District’s first “spring-like” day. We escaped for a few hours to enjoy a long walk along the water. The soon-to-bud tulips and roses inspired a crafty concoction for the Barrister’s Bar Room. We present our own cocktail, the Rosy Amneris. Enjoy the first taste to spring.

3/4 oz. Rose Water Syrup (Homemade Rose Water + Simple Syrup)
