History

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"

Comments

I really wanted to like this, because Root-based cocktails are far & few. But this was way to heavy on the citrus for me. Not balanced & needed a tad more sugar or less sour.
