Floral Flavors Are Popping Up In Foods, Beverages This Spring

May 3, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
As in men’s and women’s fashions this spring, flowers are trendy as flavorings in food and beverages. The most popular florals are lavender, hibiscus and elderflower, and each has a distinct, unique botanical flavor. The tiny white flowers of elderflower that 
smell like perfume and honey grace the liqueur St-Germain, gin, lemonade, and kombucha. Tropical and subtropical hibiscus flowers with their tart berry flavors are found in tea varieties, as well as probiotic vegetable drinks, cider, and fruit bars. Although some people think it tastes soapy, lavender can be found in lattes, honey, and ice cream.
