Even a diehard pessimist like myself is convinced. Now that the flowers are in bloom and the buds are on the trees, there’s no denying it — spring is here!

To celebrate, the good women at LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) have posted the recipe for a enticing seasonal beverage called the Black Rose. The drink pairs gin with fresh rosemary and a black pepper tincture (!), which is tempered with a little honey syrup and lemon juice. Lovely. The drink was created by a bartender at the much-celebrated Bourbon & Branch bar in San Francisco. Happy Spring!
