This week we would like to present you a very delicate drink for special events, a light and refreshing mix that will add an unforgettable accent to you cocktail party, wedding reception, or Sunday get together.
Lemon Lavander Cocktail is a champagne based cocktail with a lavender aroma that will caress your palate at every sip. Lavander is part of the mint family and maybe not a lot of you know that although being used for scents and perfumes, it is also wonderful when paired with some selected dishes! Chefs use it for baked desserts, chocolate, milk, marshmallows, fruit and of course, herbal tea.
Lemon Lavander Cocktail with its delicate and subtle lavender flavor infused within the citrusy essence of Rometti Limoncello is the perfect drink for a relaxing time with friends and family. And, surprisingly, men love it too!
2 sprigs of lavender flowers
1 oz gin
1 oz Rometti Limoncello
1/2 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
In a cocktail shaker combine lemon juice and Rometti Limoncello. Strip the lavender flowers from the stem and muddle them into the lemon mixer. That way they will release their aromatic oils. The longer you leave the flowers into the mixer, the stronger the lavender aroma. Add the gin and ice and shake well. Pour the mixer into a champagne glass and top it with champagne. Add a lavender flower to garnish.
