Lavandula Intoxicataea

Posted on Jan 6, 2013 in Drink This, Recipes | 1 comment

1 – 1.5 oz Dry Fly Gin, Aviation Gin, or Hendricks’ Gin.  (see note)

1 quarter fresh lemon

4 oz DRY Soda, lavender flavor

A dash of Scrappy’s Lavender Bitters or Bar Keep Lavender Spice bitters

Garnish options:  Fresh lavender sprig, Johnny jump-up (viola), pansy, borage blossom, or lemon twist

Ice

In a tall, skinny Collins glass or a short tumbler filled with ice, pour gin over ice.  Squeeze one lemon wedge over ice and drop into glass.  Top with Dry Lavender Soda and a dash of Scrappy’s Lavender Bitters. Garnish.

Note:  1.5 oz is a serving of gin, but if you’d like to make this drink a little less boozy, it tastes fine with only 1 ounce.
