Maple & Rose
Energies: Creativity, Happiness, Love, Lust
Celebrate the excitement of Spring and the return of the sun, with this peach, strawberry, and maple rum concoction! With peach for happiness, strawberry for invoking luck and harmony, and Wytchwood’s Aphrodite Maple for love, wellness, and abundance – this concoction is a juicy, easily addicting concoction to celebrate the seasonal flavors and energies. Topped with jovial lemon, the elevating and creative energies of orange liqueur, and grounded by the dark rum, Maple & Rose is just the Beltane drink to light your inner creative and sensual fires.
For this delightful drink, I use the Aphrodite Maple Syrup from Wytchwood (which is flavored with rose and cardamom) to complement the death of the dark spiced Kraken rum I used. Besides the fact that this maple syrup adds in extra loving energies of rose and cardamom, it is SUPERBLY delicious and has transformed my opinion of how dynamic and flavorful (and magical) maple syrup can be. I HIGHLY recommend it!
