  • 1 T lavender syrup
  • 2 shots gin
  • ice cubes
  • Tonic water
  • For the lavender syrup:
  • 1 T dried lavender blossoms
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Cooking Instructions

To make the lavender syrup:
In a saucepan, combine all the ingredients and bring to the boil. Simmer, stirring continuously, until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool before straining into a clean glass jar.
To make the cocktail:
Combine the syrup and gin in a cocktail shaker and shake with plenty of ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top up with tonic water and stir before drinking.

TASTE’s take:
Thanks to its botanical roots, gin lends itself to flower and herb flavour additions beautifully (you’d be surprised how fabulous a G and T tastes with slices of cucumber or sprigs of coriander). This light and lovely number has a subtly fragranced, seductive after taste.
