Redbud Road takes its name from a type of North America redbud tree, Cercis canadensis. In Appalachia, the redbud tree blooms in April or May, with a shiny and dense (and long lasting) array of stunning pink and purple flowers (though, curiously, no red ones). Redbud Road is an Aperol-based sour cocktail with bittersweet notes of citrus fruit, herbs, spices, and fresh-cut flowers. This fun and foamy drink is an homage to those long stretches of Appalachian roads dotted with redbuds.
