Fleur Spice Tonics at the Captain Freeman Inn

Fleur Spice Tonics by April

I always love when our kids come home to visit. Since our remodel of the Captain Freeman Inn we have a guest room in our private quarters which allows us to always have room for our favorite visitors- our family! Our middle daughter April surprised us with a last minute Easter visit and this mom could not have been more pleased:)  I was tickled pink when April and Matt arrived they gave us an Easter basket filled with products from one of April’s  favorite purveyors- the Curio Spice Co. The basket was filled with everything I love- fresh lavender, rose water, bath balms, rose petals, fleur spice and a wonderful book by Didi Emmons called Wild Flavors.

Mixing up our tonic drink

We filled our glasses with ice, added 1/4 cup Fleur Spice syrup, added  lemon juice to taste and then filled with Perrier or plain seltzer. We topped off our “lovelies” with rose petals.

Love this girl!

We all went out to our new fire pit area beside the pool and basked in the warm sun while sipping our Fleur Spice Tonics. What a great way to start off an Easter celebration with family.

Happy Spring everyone!  We plan on offering this drink as part of our afternoon repast this summer.

You can get all of these wonderful all organic products from both our daughter’s store, the Boston General Store and from Claire’s store, the Curio Spice Company.
