Thisty Thursday: Lavendar Lemonade

Thought I would try a unique sounding drink for the first recipe I post. I found this recipe here. It sounded really random and unique to me so I am going to try it this weekend. Let me know if anyone else does, and what your thoughts are!!!



INGREDIENTS:
By the Glass:
1.5oz Vodka (Ciroc seems appropriate)
1.5oz Lillet Blanc
1oz Lavender Syrup (recipe below)
1oz Lemon Juice
2oz Chilled Soda Water
French Lavender Flower for Garnish
or By the Pitcher (makes 4 glasses):
3/4 Cups Vodka
3/4 Cups Lillet Blanc
1/2 Cup Lavender Syrup
1/2 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Chilled Soda Water for each glass
French Lavender Flower for Garnish

Methodology:
Lavender Syrup:
Add equal parts sugar and water to a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Add fresh organic French lavender to taste (or 1/2 cup dried food grade lavender for every 4 cups water/4 cups sugar) and boil for one minute over medium/high heat. Remove from heat and let steep for an hour.

Drink:
Mix first four ingredients with spoon, pour over ice, add chilled soda water and garnish with lavender flower (or lemon wedges if you can’t find fresh organic lavender).
