Here’s a refreshing drink to help you celebrate the long days and hot nights of summer!
For the martini:
2 ounces blueberry lavender simple syrup
2 ounces vodka
1/4 ounce lemon juice
Shaken over ice and strained into glass rimmed with lavender sugar.
How to make the blueberry lavender simple syrup:
1/2 cup lavender sugar
1/2 cup H2O
1/2 cup blueberries
Combine all in a sauce pan over medium heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved and blueberries are soft and mashed. Remove from heat. Let steep for more intense flavor. Strain and discard blueberries and lavender flowers. Add 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice if not using immediately or if storing in refrigerator.
We used a little of this simple syrup when rimming the glass with lavender sugar!
