Signature Drink Club : French Lavender Lemonade

There is no mistaking it, summer is here. The sun is beaming, the days are long and weekends are filled with BBQ-s and pool parties. So how can you make your party stand out? Well read on, my friend because this month's entry in the signature drink club is your answer.

Cool off and refresh with a glass of French Lavender Lemonade, a fabulous summer drink courtesy of the San Ysidro Ranch by way of Design*Sponge. The lavender soothes and refreshes on a hot day, while the vodka, well we all know what that stuff does! Enjoy...

  • 1.5oz Vodka
  • 1.5oz Lillet Blanc
  • 1oz Lavender Syrup (recipe below)
  • 1oz Lemon Juice
  • 2oz Chilled Soda Water
  • French Lavender Flower for Garnish

Mix first four ingredients with spoon, pour over ice, add chilled soda water and garnish with lavender flower (or lemon wedges if you can’t find fresh organic lavender).

Lavender Syrup
  • Add equal parts sugar and water to a medium saucepan and bring to boil.
  • Add fresh organic French lavender to taste (or 1/2 cup dried food grade lavender for every 4 cups water/4 cups sugar) and boil for one minute over medium/high heat.
