Fill champagne glass or coupe with chilled sparkling wine. Add 2-3 dashes of lavender bitters and fresh fruit (we recommend blueberries or diced strawberries). For an added touch, use frozen fruits instead of ice. Check out our blog post here if you’d like to learn how to freeze fruit like a pro.


Tonico Fresco

½ oz. lemon juice
dried rose petals



In a wine glass, combine all with ice. Garnish with fresh herbs and dried rose petals. Don’t’ have time to mix up a drink? Just pour a chilled glass of rosé or white wine and garnish with rose petals. A simple and fast crowd pleaser!


Basil Strawberry Jam Fizz Mocktail

1.5 tbsp. strawberry jam or preserves
4-5 fresh basil leaves
1 tbsp. dice strawberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. agave
1 oz. seltzer
½ cup of ice


Muddle strawberry jam, basil leaves, dice strawberries, lemon juice, agave, and seltzer. Add half cup of ice and shake. Pour into a glass and top with more ice and a splash of seltzer.

Mostess Tip: Convert this to a cocktail by adding 1.5 oz. of vodka before muddling. Shake, serve, and top with seltzer. Want to upgrade your cocktail? Strain into a coupe, top with prosecco, and garnish with basil and strawberry slices.

Blueberry Thyme Refresher

¼ cup of frozen blueberries
½ tsp. lemon juice
1/3 tsp. lime juice
2-3 sprigs of thyme
¼ cup lemonade
1 oz. vodka
1 cup of ice

In a glass, layer frozen blueberries, thyme, and ice. Squeeze fresh lemon and lime juice over the ice. Pour vodka over ice and top with lemonade and a dash of seltzer. Stir and garnish with thyme. Enjoy!

Mostess Tip: Make this a non-alcoholic mocktail by substituting vodka for extra lemon juice and a half teaspoon of agave.
