After an arduous day of working, prepping food for a party of 200, the carrot at the end of the stick was the Cocktail.
And what more tantalizing inspiration than flowering tarragon.
Who could even conjure it up in a fantasy, but for me immediate flavor pairings popped to mind.
With the last pot being scrubbed and the 174th crepe being made, I began.
Drinks for the crew to wind down with.
Recipe is for 4 cocktails

A bouquet of the most gorgeous, fragrant flowering tarragon steeped into a 1:1 simple syrup
8 oz. of fresh Honey Clementine juice

Divide between 4 glasses and
finish each one off with Veuve Ambal Brut (a sparkling wine) and garnished with a sprig of the flowering tarragon
