  • 20ml lemon juice
  • 10ml lavender syrup*

A few sprigs of lavender, fresh or dried

Glassware:

Coupette

Method:

Add all ingredients into an ice filled shaker. Shake and double strain into a cocktail coupe, garnish with a sprig of lavender and enjoy!

Method:* How to make lavender syrup:

Take 100g of white granulated sugar, 50ml of water and a handful of fresh/dry lavender. Place in a glass bowl above a heated pan of warm water (a bit like a bain-marie) and stir until the sugar has fully dissolved. Take it off the heat, leave to infuse for 20 minutes and strain out the liquid. Keep in a sterilised bottle in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
