For a recent birthday brunch party I served up this extra yummy cocktail using lavender from the garden. This delicious libation is easy to batch up or serve individually. MyScoop has the recipes by the glass and by the pitcher:
Lavender Margarita, serves 2
3 oz Corralejo Reposado tequila
2 oz lavender syrup (see below for recipe)
1 lime, freshly squeezed
Prosecco club soda
Lavender stem for garnish
In a cocktail shaker combine tequila, syrup, and lime juice over rocks. Shake vigorously. Pour into a lavender salt rimmed glass over ice or serve it up. Add a splash of club soda or prosecco and garnish with rose if desired.
2 cups Corralejo Reposado tequila
1 cup lavender syrup
4 limes, freshly squeezed
Prosecco or club soda (optional)
In a pitcher combine tequila, syrup, lime juice, and stir. Top with prosecco or club soda if desired and add ice to serve.
1 cup lavender
4 cups water
2-3 cups organic sugar
Combine all ingredients in a large saute pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes. Let cool. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into storage container.
