This is the best lavender lemon drop mixed drink you can find.
All you need is:
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Water
- 2 Tbsp Fresh or dried lavender
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Triple Sec
- 1 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon
Start by making the lavender simple syrup. If you have followed us for a while, you know that a simple syrup is just one part water to one part sugar. To make the syrup for this drink, bring the water to a boil and pour in the lavender and sugar. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved. After the syrup cools, strain into a bowl.
Wet the top of your glass with a wedge of lemon. Then dip the glass in a bowl full of sugar to “frost” it. Pour the vodka, Triple Sec, and squeezed lemon over ice. Then add 1.5 oz of the lavender syrup.
Garnish with a lemon or sprig of lavender and serve.
