Summer food and drink need never be the same again. The Bloody Mary nasturtium is sure to be a culinary show stopper. Bloody Marys in the garden on sunny afternoons can only be more perfect when it is made with nasturtium infused vodka and a Bloody Mary nasturtium flower gracing the top of your glass.
Its stunning bloody red bloom can be used in everything from salads to a garnish on barbequed burgers, there is even a great recipe for nasturtium flower butter. Or go classic and take your turbo Gin and Tonic to a new level, with bloody Mary flowers frozen in ice cubes.
