Ingredients

  • 2-4 teaspoons lavender syrup, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons gin
  • squeeze of lemon, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons champagne
  • ice, if you’re ingredients aren’t already chilled
  • optional: sub sparkling water for champagne for a lighter cocktail
lavender simple syrup*:
  • about 5-7 little fresh lavender flowers
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the ingredients for the lavender syrup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Stir as needed to keep the sugar from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Transfer to a glass jar and let chill in the fridge. Strain out the lavender after 30-60 minutes and continue to let it chill. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  3. Mix all cocktail ingredients together & stir. Taste and adjust to your liking.
