the hummingbird

The Hummingbird is one of the first cocktails I fell in love with. Before I knew much about cocktails, I went to the Hawthorne in Boston, said I wanted something floral and festive, and this is what I got (served in the branded mini carafe with a spoon straw).

It’s easy, refreshing, and you should probably make one now.
