If you live in a redbud growing region and want to make redbud syrup (and subsequently this redbud bubbly), act quickly. I’ve already started to see St. Louis streets covered in a pink snow of fallen redbud flowers.
I love the idea of serving redbud bubbly for Mother’s Day, especially if you can source the redbud flowers from your own tree. You could serve the drink with a cheesy note about your “family tree” and how mom – or even better, grandma – has metaphorically helped your whole family to bloom. Moms, myself included, eat that stuff up.
Redbud bubbly is a mix of Champagne and redbud syrup that gives the champagne a slightly sweeter and more floral taste. It’s fresh and springy and, best of all, it’s such a pretty natural pink color.
