Lavender Martini

Cheers (Drink To That) by Rihanna on Grooveshark

For this weekend post, it is cocktail time!

I am loving these floral cocktails and liqueurs lately! Next on my list is the St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, but first, is Lavender! I bought this Lavender Simple Syrup which is perfect for cocktails and baking desserts!


For this Lavender Martini, you will need:
2 oz. good vodka
1 oz. soda water (excuse my orange flavored - that was all I had. Normally I would use plain soda water,    
                          and only add citrus flavor with the fresh lemon)
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbsp lavender syrup
Shake all ingredients together with ice in a cocktail shaker until blended and chilled.
Pour into serving glass.
Serve with sprig of fresh lavender, or lemon twist (I didn't. you should. be fancy!)

So There.
Enjoy your weekend!
