Thirsty Thursday: Lemon Lavender Cocktail

I found this amazing recipe courtesy of Drink of the Week

This light and refreshing drink is perfect for weddings, garden parties … or any time you want to toast something beautiful. My latest creation with Savvy Housekeeping is a champagne cocktail made with limoncello, gin, a hint of lavender and, of course, champagne.

It’s a subtle cocktail that will please a lot of different tastes. We used the fantastic Savvy Housekeeping homemade limoncello, but your favorite store-bought brand would work just as well.

Lemon Lavender Cocktail

2 sprigs of lavender flowers
1 oz gin
1 oz limoncello
1/2 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Champagne

Using your fingers, strip the lavender flowers from the stem and combine with the limoncello and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Thoroughly muddle the lavender so that the flowers release their oils into the lemon liquids. Add the gin and shake with ice. Strain into a champagne glass and top with champagne. Garnish with a lavender flower, if desired. Enjoy!

If you want a more pronounced lavender flavor and aroma in the drink, after you muddle the flowers with the lemon and limoncello, leave it steeping for 5-10 minutes so that the oil has a chance to bond with the other liquids. Or, alternately, simply put extra sprigs of lavender in as a garnish.
