GIN BLOSSOM


As I was driving the kids home from camp, I was thinking about the menu for the upcoming evening. I remembered the lavender chamomile syrup I had recently made and thought how well it would go in a cocktail. I found this recipe, that was very similar to my current favorite cocktail, and couldn't wait to try it.


GIN BLOSSOM



1 1/2 ounce gin
1 ounce elderflower liqueur
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce lavender and chamomile infused simple syrup

Shake all ingredients together and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add a light sprinkle of dried lavender buds to garnish.
Enjoy!

  1. How do you make the simple syrup (what ratios)? Sometimes mine come out a little strong.
