Solstice Sunshine

Welcome warmer days with this refreshing way to get delightfully day-drunk.

Get Started


This recipe comes from my mom, Bonnie, and my aunt, Amy, and it's a perfect summer porch cocktail.

Prairie Sunshine is a wildflower honey spirit that's similar to a white rum but distilled from mead (honey wine). If you don't have access to Prarie Sunshine, substitute with your favorite white rum and ½ oz of a floral mixer of your choice. Alternately, you can substitute with a different floral or honey-based clear liquor.
