We’ve been busy here at Invasivore… busy concocting delicious mixed drinks! That’s right, we’re combining invasivory with mixology and sharing the recipes for our adult readers. Please feel free to do some experimentation yourself and as always, drink responsibly!
- Honeysuckle simple syrup (to optimize the honeysuckle flavor, use freshly made honeysuckle syrup)
- Club soda
- Lime cut into wedges
- Mix one part honeysuckle syrup with 4 parts club soda and a shot of rum
- Finish with a squeeze of lime
- Insert tiny umbrella or garnish with a leftover honeysuckle flower or another invasive species (for example, Himalayan blackberry in the picture below)
Feel free to adjust the ratios to your tastes and eliminate the alcohol to make a kid-friendly beverage.
