The Bellflower cocktail is an herbaceous and floral nod to the summer season's beautiful blooms. This cocktail's delicately sweet flavors pair with a light yet creamy texture to create a drink perfect for sipping in the sun. So, shake one up and enjoy!

  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker.
