Doing the same things time and again gets boring fast. That’s why you need to switch things up and try new things. This week’s drink, the Violet Julep Cocktail, takes your taste buds on a novel journey rich with unique flavors.
Made with white rum and violet liqueur, the cocktail has a fresh, inviting appearance that beckons you to take the plunge into exciting adventures.
Talking of adventures, instead of another weekend at the beach this summer, try something else. Get out and try a weekend of flavor adventures – check out the farmers market for fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, etc.
Immerse yourself in the flavor tour by trying an agro-tourism day. Taste some wine, go for some honey, cheese, or even craft beer. Explore the sunflower fields and support small local businesses like butcher shops, fish markets, independent bakeries, specialist pastry shops, etc.
Take advantage of the harvest season by eating locally and supporting small businesses. Sit back and relax at the end of your flavor adventure with a chilled glass of the incredible violet julep cocktail.
