Summer we adore you and wistfully, we will miss your long days and warm nights.

As summer turns over to fall, the Honey Lavender Sparkler captures that endless summer feeling, poured over ice.

Honey Lavender Cocktail with Prosecco and Simple Syrup

.

We recently pulled together an evening of endless summer celebration at Braestone, the stunning country estate community that overlooks the rolling hills, valleys and meadows of Horseshoe Valley in the Township of Oro-Medonte.

It’s our complete pleasure to style and organize events at Braestone, inspiration abounds within the natural beauty this land has to offer. Our intention is to always infuse our events with the goodness of local food and we created this specialty cocktail with local honey as the star ingredient. Effervescent and not-to-sweet, the Braestone Honey Lavender Sparkler keeps the good summer feels rolling.
