Lime Blossom

BY NIC VASCOCU

This endlessly refreshing sunny day drink was created by our friend and mixologist Nic Vascocu. While reading about India, Nic stumbled upon nimbu pani, a sweet lime soda that's offered to guests and friends upon arrival. Nimbu pani sounded so perfect for warm weather that he couldn't resist making an infused version of his own. And so, the Lime Blossom came into being. Artet's cardamom, allspice, and ginger notes sub in perfectly for the subtle spices that make traditional "Indian lemonade" so delicious. A healthy dose of citrus, a little THC, and green notes work together to soothe sun-soaked senses.
