How much do we love Lavender? It’s actually hard to put into words why this little purple plant makes our heart flutter, but with all of Lavender’s nurturing, healing, and anti-inflammatory benefits, how could we not want to drink it as well!

 

Cue the Lavender Collins Cocktail. Nothing says, “TGIF” more than this mouth-watering, sip-worthy treat. Drink it in the garden reading a book solo, with your girlfriends, or with your honey. Anyway you sip it, it will for sure go down smooth. Here’s the skinny:

 

YOU WILL NEED (per cocktail)

 

1 1/2 oz Jensens Bermondsey Gin

 

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

 

1/2 oz lavender syrup ( method below)

 

3 oz club soda

 

Sprig of lavender for garnish

 

To make the lavender syrup:

 

1 cup water

 

3 tbsp fresh or dried lavender flowers

 

2 cups sugar

 

METHOD

 

Firstly to make the lavender syrup, bring water and lavender to the boil in a saucepan, using a wooden spoon stir in sugar until it is completely dissolved  Reduce heat and simmer for 5 mins. Remove from the heat and allow to cool with the lavender, once cooled strain flowers away. This will store for 1 week in the fridge.

 

To make the Lavender Collins, transfer all ingredients except club soda into a cocktail shaker and mix. Pour into a long glass full of ice. Top up with the club soda and a sprig of lavender to decorate.
