Culinary: Lavender French 75.


Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, it's nice to sit back and relax a little with a drink in hand. I'm not very big on making drinks at home but I enjoy them when I'm out with friends. However, I've been finding so many great recipes on PINTEREST, I think it's about time I try making some for myself. This one in particular caught my eye because the ingredients are simple and the recipe just sounds delicious. 

Lavender French 75

Serving Size: cocktail recipe, serves 1 / simple syrup recipe

lavender french 75

  • 2-4 teaspoons lavender syrup, to tast
  • 4 tablespoons gin
  • squeeze of lemon, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons champagne
  • ice (if ingredients aren't chilled)
Optional :: sub sparkling water for champagne for a lighter cocktail
  • about 5-7 little fresh lavender flowers
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the ingredients for the lavender syrup to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Stir as needed to keep the sugar from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Transfer to a glass jar and let chill in the fridge. Strain out the lavender after 30-60 minutes and continue to let it chill. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  3. Mix all cocktail ingredients together & stir. Taste and adjust to your liking.
Since the concentration of your lavender syrup may vary, I found that the best way to "measure" this was to pour just enough syrup until I could taste the floral note. (about 2 splashes)
