File this one under “classy”. The addition of lavender makes this cocktail both special and pretty, especially if your lavender is flowering (unfortunately it’s fall right now and my lavender is without its beautiful purple flowers).
It’s tart, and not too sweet and tastes a lot like grapefruit, thanks to the addition of one of Beckham + Belle’s favorite cocktail ingredients – St Germain. Here’s how it’s done.
1.5 oz. gin
1 oz. St Germain
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1 sprig of lavender for shaking and 1 for garnish
Place all ingredients (except for second sprig of lavender) with ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with that second sprig of lavender.
