The Apple Flower Cocktail

The Apple Flower Cocktail www.abeautifulmess.comThe Apple Flower is light and fresh with the perfect amount of floral sweetness. Recently, I've been reworking my cocktail cart for Spring, storing away certain items and adding new seasonal flavors. Jeremy and I have been working on a short list of signature cocktails that we can serve to guests for dinners and brunches. This cocktail would work for brunch, which is always a perk! 

The Apple Flower Cocktail.. making fresh apple and lime juice www.abeautifulmess.comThe Apple Flower Cocktail, Serves One 

Fresh juice (I used 3 small green apples and two limes) 
Rose Water
Bénédictine Liqueur 

In a medium sized glass, combine 2 ounces of Bénédictine Liqueur and one drop of rose water. Be very careful when adding the rose water because adding too much will make your drink taste like a bottle of perfume. The easiest way to get just one (teeny tiny) drop is to just dip an unused straw into the rose water and then use that straw in your drink, stirring it a little. Add ice and top the glass off with fresh green apple and lime juice. Garnish with a lime or an edible flower.The Apple Flower Cocktail The Apple Flower Cocktail  I hope you enjoy this refreshing cocktails! If you don't drink you should still try fresh apple and lime juice with just one drop of rosewater. It's so good and tastes exactly like Spring! 

Happy weekend! Elsie 

  • Beautiful and sounds just wonderful! Great summer cocktail.

  • This looks beyond delicious. Will definitely be trying it out sometime soon! Anything with fresh juice tastes so healthy, even if its a little alcoholic….

  • Hey girls,

    I’m a 21 years old french woman. I love reading your blog. You always have good ideas, and I love american lifestyle.
    One day, I want to have my own blog but I’m waiting the good moment to do this.

    Have a nice day or night, because i don’t know what time it is in your country.


  • Oh yum! Sounds so good! I LOVE all of your cocktails!

    xo Lisa

  • Wow delicious juice this. Tomorrow I will try like this.

  • Oh my… this sounds lush!

    Can’t wait to make this

  • I do a Thirsty Thursday linkup on Thursdays. You should stop by one Thursday and link up one of your new cocktails!! I would love that!! We had our first linkup last week, we’re hoping this one goes a little better.

  • Louise, it’s a sweet herbal liqueur. It mixes well with champagne, similar to St. Germain. I like it better than St. Germain, though 🙂

  • Ladies, excuse my ignorance but what does Benedictine taste like??

  • It looks absolutely delicious!

  • This looks delicious! I love anything apple flavored 🙂


  • That looks so good! Definitly going to try this next weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  • Fun fact! There’s a miners club in my hometown (not exactly the nicest town) that is the single biggest consumer of benedictine in the world. I think they’re pretty proud of that fact actually. My mum loves the stuff, personally I don’t see the appeal 😉

  • Daum, I want one of those!!

    Check out my blog on random stuff and fashion, it’s not that bad really…


  • Like the sound of this (minus the alcohol), just reading it makes me drool a little!Rx

  • It looks so delicious and sounds really refreshing! I’ll totally try this.

  • This looks so great! Perfect for a mother’s day brunch!

  • Love the idea of using Rose Water! Never thought of that before. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    xo, Alex

  • I’ll have to give this a try! I seriously adore your blog. I stumbled upon it on Pinterest one day and instantly felt so inspired! I just created my own blog a few weeks ago, and although I have a lot to learn, I am so excited to see where it takes me! The only problem is, i’m not quite sure how to gain readers. Any ideas? Thanks for your inspiring work! You both are wonderful. (Here’s a link to my blog if you’d like to take a peek!

  • How beautiful! Sounds good.

  • Definitely trying to non-alcoholic version of this! Sounds amazing.

  • I would love to hear more about the seasonal switch out! Such a cool concept! We have an antique bar cabinet that has a top where we like to feature our favorite liquor of the moment. Seasonal sounds like a great way to do this!

  • For some reason this cocktail struck me as something both exotic and something I would find set on my grandmother’s dressing table in the afternoon. Either way I’m inspired to shake up my seasonal beverages. Awesome.
