Get ready for an onslaught of recipes like this Apricot & Orange Blossom Syrup because stone fruit is officially in season and I can't seem to leave the market without a basket full!
Recently I teamed up with my party-loving friend Kate of Hola Jalapeño, to celebrate our friend Aida's recent marriage in Thailand with a deliciously elegant TKTK. I couldn't resist volunteering my services to build a champagne bar for our guests.
I set up the bar with a trio of delicious fruit syrups, including this apricot orange blossom simple syrup recipe, 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!
