Equipment

  • cocktail shaker with strainer
  • measuring jigger
  • cocktail glass (coupe or martini)

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 ounces lavender syrup

Instructions

  • This cocktail is best when served very cold so chill your cocktail glass before preparing and serving this drink (see notes on chilling glassware).

  • Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a fresh lavender spring or a lemon peel.

Notes

How to Chill a Cocktail Glass

  • There are a few ways to chill a cocktail glass. One is to freeze it in the freezer. 30 minutes is best but at least 5 minutes will get it nice and cold. Some people wrap the glass with a damp paper towel first, speeding up the process.
  • Another way to chill a cocktail glass is to use crushed ice and soda water. The bubbles speed up the chilling process. But, if you don't have soda water, regular water will work, just not quite as well
 
  • Always measure out your ingredients to get the best-tasting cocktail
  • If you want a less-sweet cocktail, add ½ ounce more lemon juice and use ½ ounce less lavender simple syrup
  • A coupe or martini glass will work best with this cocktail.
