Kick Off With The Cocktails (& Mocktails)

Adding to the allure of Madison’s afternoon tea experience was a curated selection of cocktails inspired by the iconic works of Alphonse Mucha. There are two cocktails and one mocktail for folks who do not want to get tipsy.

We went for the visually stunning Alphonse Mucha Vesper which featured Empire Handcrafted Gin, Vermouth, Grenadine, Triple Sec, Lemon Citrus, and 24 Karat Gold as well as the Apricot Parisian Gimlet made with Citadelle Gin, Roussillon Apricot, Orange Clover Honey, Citrus Bitters, and 24 Karat Gold.

While Fleur de Sel Summer Spritz (Mocktail) was supposed to be refreshing. We like our drinks with a bit of kick.
