Why send flowers when you can drink roses? The Brilliant Blush cocktail is full of romance

Society Lounge's cocktail combines raspberries, tea and roses in the ruby-red Brilliant Blush. It's sure to spark a romance.

Tim Freeman, bartender extraordinaire at Society Lounge (2063 E. 4th St.) has created the flavor of love in a glass. Putting together a tequila he infused with dehydrated roses, a mezcal flavored with rooibos tea, and a German raspberry shrub, he created the Brilliant Blush. A ruby-red, bright and boozy concoction that is sure to awake emotions you didn’t know you had.

Society Lounge, located down a flight of stairs on East 4th, is a throwback bar that evokes the spirit of the 1920’s. High-end cocktails, and low, buttery lighting hearkens back to a more glamorous era.  Wine, beer, cheese and charcuterie boards are also available.
