I came up short with the state's flower, fruit, etc. and opted for a refreshing summer Pandemic Porch Cocktail. On July 20 we sipped Lemony Elderflower 3 oz lemonade 3 oz white wine 1 oz ederflower syrup Lemon peel for garnish Combine and pour into a martini glass. Top with a lemon peel.
Okay, July 30 was National Cheesecake Day, but I was not inspired and it was hot and steamy. So, I made a refreshing Lemon Mint Fizz Serves 2 4 oz vodka 2 mint sprigs 1/4 cup simple syrup 2 lemon peels lemon seltzer lemon twist mint leaves Muddle the mint and lemon peels in the syrup. Add the vodka and shake with ice. Pour into a rocks glass and top with seltzer and garnish with a lemon twist, and mint.
