INSPIRATION:

My last name being Codamon, Microsoft Word incessantly autocorrected it to “Cardamom” at the top of every term paper I have ever written. For my college essay, I forgot to proofread and submitted it as was. Everyone teased that it was the only reason I got into culinary school.

I wanted to create a bold Spring cocktail that was light and refreshing but with a memorable flavor such as cardamom.
