May Flowers

This Spring-y cocktail features lemon poppyseed syrup – my new obsession! If you’ve ever made orgeat, it’s the same basic process, and instead of adding orange blossom water, I added the juice of a lemon. The result is a delicious syrup that tastes just like the muffins, and pairs perfectly with blackberry and lavender on a Spring afternoon.


  • 2 oz blackberry-infused vodka
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz kombucha (I used GT’s Kombucha, Original)
  • .75 oz lemon & poppyseed syrup
  • 1 tsp lavender

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Fine strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with tulip petals and a blackberry.

  • Great recipes! A quick question though… as orgeat is usually made with almonds, do you just substitute poppyseeds for almonds to make the syrup? Thank you!
