Lavender Happiness Cocktail –
When I spotted Lavender Dry Soda at the grocery store, I knew it would be pretty darn easy to figure out a way to use it in a Mama Beth cocktail. (There are so many other tantalizing flavors of Dry Soda to choose from – juniper berry looked like a future winner. Rhubarb too.) Our lavender plants are loaded with flowers right now. St. Germain, an elderflower liquer, sounded like a good partner for the lavender. I wanted to keep this cocktail light and summery. So vodka made a nice neutral base. Before I knew it, I had a glass of happiness!
Heres the recipe for:
Lavender Happiness Cocktail
- 1 1/4 ounces vodka
- 1/4 ounce St. Germain elderflower liquer
- 4 ounces of chilled Lavender Dry Soda
- Garnish of organic lavender sprig
Mix the vodka and the elderflower liquer with some ice cubes and strain into a glass. Add the Lavender Dry Soda, and garnish with a sprig of lavender.
