Instructions
Cardamom Cappuccino Simple Syrup
  1. In a saucepan bring water and sugar to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and stir until sugar dissolves. Keep on low and add a cheese cloth (or small tea infuser) filled with cardamom pods and cappuccino powder, allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and strain out any solids before allowing to cool in a sterilized container. You can store this syrup for up to 3 weeks in a cool dry place.
Cocktail
  1. The night before, add distilled water to ice cube tray, placing edible flowers in each. Check back after 30 minutes to adjust flowers as needed. Allow to freeze overnight. Add bourbon and infused simple syrups into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain over floral ice cubes in a tall glass. Top with tonic or soda water. (Can also be served straight up in a coup (without tonic water or ice cubes) for a more formal cocktail – simple garnish with edible flowers and enjoy.
