Flora Adora Bubble Bees

Flora Adora Bubble Bees

Floral Sweetness Bright Citrus Vegetarian Easy

Where would we be without bees? Shudder to think of a universe without the cucumbers whose flowers they pollinate! Here is a worthy tribute to these vital bumblers, a marvelously effervescent cocktail with the blooming aromas of Flora Adora and the sweetness of vanilla and honey. Should a bee land on its surface, we recommend sharing a sip.

Some questions
people often ask us

What type of sparkling wine should I use?

Spanish cava, Italian prosecco, or Champagne if you're feeling fancy!

Help! My garden bar is fresh out of stemmed glassware.

Worry not. One can still enjoy Bubble Bees in a mason jar, flower pot, or any stemless vessel you have on hand.

Are all flowers edible?

We suggest consulting a reliable botanical field guide, but pansies, violets and nasturtiums are always safe, beautiful and delicious bets.

A brief history of
the Bubble Bees

The Bubble Bees is an effervescent floral marriage of two famously classic cocktails: a French 75 and a Bees Knees. We added marvelous hint of vanilla, which, curiously enough, comes from a specific variety of orchid and gives this drink a luxuriously fragrant grace note.
