Cocktails inspired by the Cherry Blossom Festival

The 2014 Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing, and we’re happy to toast to spring with these cherry blossom–inspired concoctions from the new Library Bar in the lobby of the posh Rittenhouse Hotel (210 W. Rittenhouse Sq.), and Bar 210 in the hotel’s elegant Lacroix restaurant, where the fancy people drink.



2 oz. Sake
1/2 oz. Maker’s Mark Bourbon
1/2 oz. Amarena Cherry Nectar
1/2oz. Yuzu juice
3/4 oz. Cherry blossom soda

Shake all the ingredients, but not the foam, with ice and single strain into a cocktail glass. Top with the cherry blossom foam and garnish with cherry blossoms.
