Shake all but club, pour over large ice in a 12oz Collins glass, top with club & garnish


Reiley Ridge was my Grandfather's nursery; I wanted a drink that combined the indigenous, old fashioned spices of the South-Eastern U.S. and a strong floral element to remind me of the summers full of rhododendrons, azaleas, and sunsets. This drink has "sippability"
