This cocktail taste like spring in the glass. Combination of gin, lavender and mint is refreshing, light and herbaceous. It will keep you cool under spring sunshine.
In a shaker combine:
2-3 mint leaves
1.5 oz gin (I use Botanist)
0.75 oz lemon juice
0.75 oz simple syrup
1 dash of Scrappy’s Lavender Bitters
Add ice and briefly shake. Strain over ice into a tall cocktail glass. Top with soda water. Garnish with a mint sprig and a flower(optional).
P.S. If you like herbaceous drinks try to add a sprig of thyme in the cocktail. It takes it to a different level. It makes the body of cocktail fuller.
