I set up the bar with a trio of delicious fruit syrups, including this apricot orange blossom syrup, fresh pressed citrus juice, and a variety of edible flowers for garnishing our glasses. It was so easy since the syrups could all be made a few days in advance and was such a hit amongst our guests!
