Stir together the gin, lemon juice, and lavender syrup in a glass. Top with club soda, ice, and a lemon slice for garnish.
For the Lavender Syrup.
- 200ml water
- 200ml sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried lavender buds
In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water. Cook over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens slightly. After that, set aside to cool. Refrigerate after straining out the lavender.
This recipe makes 200ml of syrup.
Koktel Od Limuna I Lavande is another name for it.
There’s just something about lemons that screams summer. It could be the bright yellow color, or the strong zing that hits you in the nose when you grate some zest off. Is it the light, fresh, and pale color of lemon juice? Just looking at it makes you feel relaxed and cool. And that sharp, tangy taste that causes every muscle in your face to twitch and your eyes to squint as if you’re looking at the sun… Priceless!
So, whenever I’m feeling down, I turn to lemons. And, because I’m a color freak (don’t ask), I like to mix in some lavender. The fragrant lavender buds not only add a lovely sweetness and mellow down the sharpness of the lemons, but they also add a lovely sweetness and mellow down the sharpness of the lemons. Even better if you have some gin on hand. Go for it, in my opinion.
When life hands you lemons, skip the lemonade and make yourself a proper drink instead. You’ll be ready for a new beginning in no time. Just take my word for it.
I only made minor changes to the amounts. To make this cocktail, first make a simple lavender syrup. The recipe is included, and it makes about 200ml of syrup. This will make 5 drinks. If you have any leftovers, store them in the fridge and use them to flavor other drinks or desserts.
