After posting about lavender lemonade I have been thinking about using lavender in all kinds of drinks. And thanks to Jenny from hank + hunt I found a fun new recipe to try.

Enjoy : )

  • Glass:
  • 1.5oz Vodka (Ciroc seems appropriate but we used a local Pennsylvania vodka)
  • 1.5oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1oz Lavender Syrup (recipe below)
  • 1oz Lemon Juice
  • 2oz Chilled Soda Water
  • French Lavender Flower for Garnish
  • 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


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.


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).
