Lavender Lemon Drop Martini

Serves 2

  • 4 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. lavender simple syrup (see recipe below)
  • 2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier liqueur (or Triple Sec)
  • Lemon slice for garnish

Fill a large cocktail shaker with ice and add vodka, lavender simple syrup, lemon juice and Grand Marnier. Shake Well. Strain into martini glass and garnish martini with a lemon slice.

Lavender Simple Syrup

  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups culinary-grade dried lavender
  • 4 cups of sugar
  • 4-5 frozen blueberries for color (optional)

Boil water, culinary-grade dried lavender, sugar and blueberries (optional) in a large pot. Bring to a full boil while steadily mixing. Lower temperature to a simmer for about 10 minutes or until mixture slightly thickens. Allow to steep for 1 hour to fully infuse flavor. Strain through a mesh sieve and pour into an airtight bottle or jar. Place syrup in the refrigerator to cool.

(Note: To make a smaller batch, follow the same directions but cut ingredients by half)
