Karolina Born-Tschümperlin, Forest Green Man Lavender Farm
1 1/2 ounces LEGEND DISTILLING vodka or gin (or other)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp of lavender syrup*
TIP: Keep your gin and/or vodka in the freezer. That way you won’t need to add ice.
Mix vodka or gin, lemon juice and lavender syrup in the shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Lavender syrup is available from Forest Green Man Lavender www.forestgreenman.com or you can easily make your own:
*Lavender Simple Syrup:
Use 1 cup of water per two cups of sugar
3 Tbsp of dried culinary lavender flowers
Bring water to a boil. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Reduce heat, so not to over boil, add lavender flowers and simmer for 18 – 20 minutes.
Remove from stove and allow to cool down.
Strain out the lavender through a sieve and press the lavender out, as there is a lot of goodness in it.
Keep in a sterilized container or bottle and seal. Keep in the fridge after opening.
If sterilized properly, it will store well for several months.
