It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

Spring has officially sprung—according to the calendar at least. If you ask us, there’s no better symbol of spring than flowers. A floral cocktail adds a refreshing hit to post-work drinks. Plus, after months of drinking warming hot toddies, they’re a welcome change. And we know what you're thinking, no, they don’t taste like you’re drinking perfume. We swear!

To celebrate the season, take a sip of one of these floral cocktails you can make at home:

1. Hibiscus Champagne Cocktail by Olivia’s Cuisine

If you love champers, you’re going to love this fresh twist on it. It has a gorgeous color, it’s easy to make, and it tastes great. Take a chilled champagne of your choice and mix it with hibiscus syrup. If you’re feeling fancy, put an edible hibiscus flower at the bottom of your glass.

2. Rose Water by Collective Gen

A rose drink is a good one to try if you’re new to floral cocktails. And you might already have a bottle of rose water in the cupboard. To make the drink, simply mix the rose water with Cointreau, soda water, raspberry juice, and lime juice. Garnish with flowers for a seasonal touch.

3. Chamomile, Honey, and Whiskey Cocktail by A Cozy Kitchen

Chamomile isn’t just for tea. Grab your chamomile tea bags, oranges, lemons, honey, and whisky, or bourbon and you have yourself a delicious tipple. If you want to garnish it with fresh chamomile flowers, go for it.

4. Lavender Lemonade Martini by Creative Culinary        

Lavender is another classic flavor. And once you get a sip of this, you’re probably never going to be able to go back to drinking regular lemonade. The mix of vodka, lavender, lemon, and sugar is amazing.

5. Edible Flower Lemon Jello Shots by Sugar and Cloth

The humble Jello shot gets a pretty spring makeover with this recipe. Grab some sugar, lemon juice, packages of gelatin, vodka, and Cointreau to make your traditional shot. Then garnish with some pretty edible flowers.
