|A Honey Bee collecting the nectar to make the honey|
This gives me an idea for a spring is springing type of cocktail. The idea of the nectar calls upon the Agave plant, source of some really fine sweetener. Then maybe the ginger blossom was inspirational to bring in the Barritt's Ginger Beer into play. Now all I need is a rum and maybe something to bring it all together. I'm feeling the urge to get out on the water, luring me to an idea of a nice Papa's Pilar Blonde Rum as the base.
