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.

Lavender Ice Cream Floats

Fill your glass half way with the lavender soda, add two scoops of ice cream, and garnish with a fresh lavender sprig. Instant summer ambience…and you have instant sweet simpicity. Delicious.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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

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).

This looks amazing!

To make lavender icing infuse the juice of a lemon with 1tsp of lavender flowers.
Mix 150g of icing sugar with about 3 tbsp of the strained lemon juice then add some food colouring to get the pale lavender shade. Or you can try {this} recipe for lavender frosting.

yum!
