La, La, La Lavender Martini! Our summer botanical cocktail series continues with a delicious (and gorgeous!) herb-inspired refresher!
By now you’ve all enjoyed last week’s Bellini Popsicles and have been on the edge of your seats waiting for our next summer cocktail recipe ever since that last lick! Well, you’re in luck, because we’re back with another one just in time for the weekend! Here we go…
So we all know that lavender has natural botanical properties that support relaxation and healing, so it seems perfectly apropos to toss in some vodka and gin for a cocktail that will help you thoroughly ease into that weekend groove! This Lavender Martini (by, The Framed Table and ProFlowers) recipe has us searching our playlist for some Al Green easy listening!
Here’s what you need…
1 oz Crème de Violette
1 oz Gin
1 oz Vodka
¼ oz Domaine de Canton
¼ oz St. Germaine (elderflower liqueur)
1 dash Scrappy’s Lavender Bitters
Fresh cut lavender for garnish
And here’s how you do it…
Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well for 30 seconds and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with fresh lavender springs.
Easy enough, right?! Thanks again to our friends at The Framed Table for the great images and delish recipe… Enjoy a relaxing weekend, and we’ll see you next week! Cheers!
