Ingredients

For the lavender simple syrup:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 sprigs of lavender

For the cocktail:

  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 oz vodka chilled

To Garnish:

  • Sugar for rimming
  • Additional lavender sprigs
  • Lemon slices halved

Instructions

To Make the Simple Syrup:

  • Combine the sugar and water in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil; cook only until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add lavender sprigs and allow to cool completely, stirring occasionally.

To Make the Cocktail:

  • Rim the edge of two martini glasses with a lemon slice and dip the edge into sugar (I like cake decorating sugar with larger crystals)
  • Strain the lavender simple syrup into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and add the lemon juice and vodka. Shake until VERY cold.
  • Pour the lemonade/vodka mixture through a strainer into a cocktail glass. I prefer it without ice but if you prefer, put some crushed ice into the glass first.
  • Garnish with lavender sprigs and lemon slices.

Notes

This is also a delightful drink without the vodka if serving to non drinkers or children!
