Whisky & Floral Ice Bowls – Whisky Chamomile Punch made with John Sleeman and Sons

I know we don’t always think Whisky and Flowers can go together, but I’m crushing all that negativity by stirring up a delicious Whisky Chamomile Punch recipe that’s approachable for anyone! Plus, we’re going to get into how to create a show-stopping Floral Ice Bowl, which florals to use and so much more. Ready to start mixing?

Building your Floral Ice Bowl

I’m sure I’m not the first person you’ve seen put florals into ice. Maybe this isn’t the first time seeing florals in a bowl. But if it is, what a treat you’re getting into, plus it’s so easy to assemble.

The key note when building a Floral Ice Bowl is to ensure your bowls are the exact same shape, but available in different sizes. I’m sure I used a Bowl set that I picked up from Home Sense or Ikea. You don’t have to buy any fancy material to make this bowl happen. Plus you want to be mindful of what you’re putting into it. What’s the volume of the cocktail? How much will you need? And most importantly, is that you have a plate that can compliment and hold the water that will melt slowly from the floral ice bowl.

I share a video on my Socials on how to build the floral ice bowl, plus other items from this segment. Click on the link HERE to watch it yourself (if it isn’t linked, it’s not launched yet!).

Building a Whisky Chamomile Punch that Everyone Can Enjoy!

As I said, I was very mindful of what spirit I wanted to use, because I wanted to give a new face to Whisky. I know for the female demographic, it’s not the one that’s typically leaned on, but it should! And just like I believe there is a Chardonnay that is right for you and you just haven’t found it, I feel the same with whisky. There’s so many identities to whisky and you can’t close off an entire category based on one style.

Plus, I build an approachable cocktail, that should please the masses and there’s a big thanks to John Sleeman and Sons Traditional Straight Whisky for that one. This is from a local brand here in Ontario, with a delicious selection of spirits, but I recently fell in love with this Traditional Whisky. It’s leaning towards a Bourbon Style for this dram, so if Bourbon is your preference, you will love this!

Rosé Beer? Please Explain…

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You read it. Rosé BEER is officially here! And it’s made by the iconic Kronenbourg Brewery, and if you love the Blanc, then I’m sure you’ll love this. This is the first of its kind with this category here in Ontario and I’m so excited I got a chance to create with this delicious number. So what can you expect from this Rosé Beer? It comes with its iconic Wheat Beer based that has slight floral and berry notes, to make it a really easy sipper on its own this Summer!

I added this to the punch, because I like to add an effervescent component to punches, as it also lengthens the cocktail! And it lengthens the cocktail at an approachable cost. Plus, if you’ve known me for some time now, I love mixing up Beers in cocktails and we should be doing it more often!
