Lavender Spritz Cocktail


You’ll  have enough syrup to make about 12-18 cocktails. These alcohol measures are for one cocktail. I always make this by the pitcher and then make each drink to order so the bubbles are fresh.  The touch of blueberries help the color of the drink to be more vibrant.  You can rim your glasses with a bit of the Lavender Simple Syrup and them dip in regular sugar or Lavender Sugar for a fancier presentation.

Lavender Spritz Cocktail



Lavender Simple Syrup

1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender flowers

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

handful frozen blueberries


2 tablespoons gin

1-2 tablespoons lavender syrup (to taste)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Champagne/Prosecco to top

Make Lavender Simple Syrup:  Place flowers, water, sugar and blueberries in a small saucepan and gently heat until sugar has dissolved.  Simmer for 1-2 minutes.  Remove from heat, cover and steep for 20 minutes.  Strain and chill until needed. 

Add gin, lavender syrup and lemon juice to small measuring cup. You can do this part in a pitcher ahead of time and be ready to make drinks for a party.

Pour into desired serving glass (flutes are nice) and top with bubbles.  Garnish with lavender wand if desired.
