Years ago I had a lavender martini at a restaurant and it was delightful! I’ve always wanted to recreate it but haven’t ever had any easy way to make it (or the motivation to give it a try). But since then, I’ve discovered essential oils. Thus, I present to you my lavender lemon drop.
Ingredients for Lemon Drop
- 1/2 a lemon juiced
- 3 oz vodka
- 1 tbs Lavender simple syrup
Add all ingredients into shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain liquid into glass rimmed with sugar.
Ingredients for Lavender Simple Syrup
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2-5 drops of Lavender essential oil(be sure that you use essential oils rate for ingestion)
Heat water and sugar till sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Add essential oils. Cool completely before adding to lemon drop.
Time to enjoy! I so wish I had lavender in my yard to add a sprig to my drink. It’s one of my favorite plants ever! Time to add to the shopping list!
You could try adding lemon essential oil too.
