Their second annual cocktail competition is on Sunday April 16th from 3pm-6pm. It comes a day before tax day so I am sure we could all use a drink then! Griffo is a local distillery located in Petaluma. They have a variety of delicious spirits ranging from gin, aged gin, whiskey, and coffee liqueur. I will be judging along with other rad females Virginia Miller of A Perfect Spot and Phaedra Achor of Monarch Bitters. In order to get to know their spirits more ahead of the competition this weekend, I mixed up this Flora and Juniper cocktail using Griffo Gin.

They do get their juniper from Italy, giving it a spicer notes then local California juniper that lends more floral notes. The meyer lemon really comes through on the nose while coming in subtle on the palate rounded out by the coriander and punch of juniper. I made a sour by adding spicy, sweet cardamom syrup, tart hibiscus tea, lemon, rose water and egg white to the Griffo Gin. Topped with a display of edible flowers from rose petals to lilacs, this cocktail is a a showstopper!

    Hi! I LOVE your IG account. Such a treat when a new cocktail appears.

    I noticed that you mentioned an egg white in the description above, but did not see one in the ingredient list. Should I add one? Thanks!

      Hi Ellie! So glad you enjoy all the libations!

      I was changing the recipe order around and must have updated it omitting the egg white, just added it back in. Use about 1 oz of egg white or 1 white from a medium egg. Cheers.

    Can you use chick pea water (aquafaba) to make this vegan? It’s beautiful and sounds sublime!

      Yes, you can certainly use Aqua faba to make this! Use about 2 tablespoons in place of the egg white. Cheers!
