A Marigold Cocktail or 2 for October...

marigold cocktail with cointreau

As the Marigold is the birth flower for this month of October, it may be nice to drink a toast to the end of the month with a cocktail flavoured with Marigold flower petals.

This one is made with Cointreau and Bacardi, muddled with Marigold petals.

marigold cocktail with gin

And this one is Hendricks gin, simple syrup and Marigold flowers.

Both of them sound delicious, and as Marigolds happen to be in flower in both hemispheres at this time of year, there's no reason not to try one, I figure.

Bartender, pass the secateurs and my flower basket please!
