The Buckeye Blossom

The Buckeye Blossom

Father and son alumni duo make a refreshing cocktail to welcome springtime.

The DuPont family, including Robert '87 and Brock '18, has a long history at Ohio State, spanning over 60 years since the first member arrived on campus as a student. This legacy lends itself well to the creation of the Buckeye Blossom, their modern twist on the classic French 75.

With notes of juniper, the Buckeye Blossom packs a smoky, sweet surprise from a combination of mezcal and St. Germain elderflower liqueur. Celebrate the arrival of spring with a cocktail that brings you back to sitting under the blossoming trees on the green lawn of the Oval.
