Lavender Lemon Drop

The cocktail queen is back, and I have been making some amazing drinks this part week….just need to get back in the habit of posting them πŸ™‚

Found some lavender at one of my favorite local ice cream shops and decided to add it to my mixing routine. I turned it into an amazing Lavender Lemon Drop, this one you HAVE to try!!

Here’s what you need:

3oz vodka

2oz limoncello

1 1/4 c cane sugar

1/4 c powdered sugar

1/2 c Lavender Buds (Dried): You can find these at specialty food stores or craft stores like Michaels or Joann Fabrics

1 Lemon

1. Start by chilling 2-3 martini glasses in the freezer or with ice and water/carbonated water.

2. Next up, the lavender rimming sugar preparation. I did not have a mortar and pestle which I would probably recommend for lavender grinding, but a muddler worked. Grind 3 1 tablespoon of lavender buds with 1/4c cane sugar. Once the lavender has been broken down, add 1/4c powdered sugar. What kind of pharmacist am I not owning a mortar and pestle πŸ™‚

3. Then for the lavender simple syrup prep. Grind 1 tablespoon of lavender buds with 1 cup of sugar. Then add 1/2 cup of boiling water. The lavender syrup is so pretty, hard to see in this pic but it ends up being a dark purple color.

4. Now mix the 3oz vodka, 2oz limoncello, juice of 1 lemon, and 3oz lavender syrup to a shaker full of ice and shake it up. Pour over sugar-rimmed martini glasses and garnish with a lemon slice!

There they are! They ended up being a light purple color which is a unique cocktail color. This drink was so good!! Some people said it was my best, but they haven’t tried them all πŸ™‚

This is sure to cure any case of the Mondays or set the mood for your next cocktail party. Enjoy!
