Lifestyle Blog Design Sponge honors the tradition behind the blooming of cherry blossom trees by sharing a floral aperitif that makes use of the flower as a source of inspiration for a refreshing summer cocktail. The beverage recreates the scent and rosy pink hue of the tree's bloomed flowers using infused rosebuds and vanilla.

The beverage requires only a few ingredients to make and opts for a fermentation process to enhance the sweet flavors. The base is comprised of vermouth, dried rosebud petals and vanilla bean that is left to steep for up to a week. The liquid is then strained and served in a tall glass over ice.

The upscale drink recreates the presentation of a cherry blossom with a live branch from the tree carefully arranged to sprawl across the drinking glass.
