Make it Yourself: 3 Antioxidant-Rich Cocktail Recipes

Rhianon Lassila

On Tuesday, May 23, Merz Apothecary hosted an event based around all things Skincare. Our Sales Associates walked attendees through all the important steps of a balanced, healthy routine and explained some of the ways that our selection of products work.

There were samples and goody bags to be had–and, yes, cocktails! The recipe for each one was inspired by ingredients in the skincare products. The Rosehip and Lavender syrups were even created using Smallflower teas, which you can shop here →

Read on for the recipes behind the three cocktails we served.
