What is the secret to hosting the sunniest of spring brunches? We’d argue it’s greeting your family and friends with beautiful, refreshing cocktails that have everyone begging for recipes — or at least refills.

To come up with just that sort of thing, Kit visited Cardinal Spirits, the craft distillery in Bloomington known for its top-notch spirits and creative botanical liqueurs.

We are particularly smitten with Flora — Cardinal Spirits’ liqueur infused with elderflower, jasmine, hibiscus and raspberries. You’ll be smitten, too, after you see how simple it is to mix a cocktail with it!
