The Original May Day - Floralia!

May 1st was originally an ancient Roman festival of flowers. Floralia was a "licentious, pleasure-seeking" festival to celebrate the coming of summer.

We're not a flower garnish kind of bar, but we're curious: do you have a favorite floral drink - a beer with a floral nose, or a cocktail that uses flowers as a garnish or taste? We'd love to hear them. Share your favorite recipes in the comments!
