The Camellia

Let’s drink to love with this romantic little tipple from the mixologists at Lulu Wild, Brindleyplace 

Legend has it that the Camellia represents the union between two lovers. The delicate petals of the flower represent the woman while the green leaves that hold the petals together represent the man who protects her. It is said that even after death, the two components stay intact and fall away together, representing eternal love.⁠ Aaahhh…makes you feel all warm inside, doesn’t it!

Combine all ingredients into a shaker, top your shaker with fresh cubed ice, seal the shaker and shake vigorously to ensure all the ingredients are mixed properly.
