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.
Cheers!
Enjoy your weekend!

  2. This sounds so refreshing! I love that you just used what you had. Very resourceful of you - and actually, I think the orange/citrus would be a good complement to the lavender.
