A Gin and Tonic Cocktail made with a Juniper Syrup and Herbal Infused Tonic. My favorite cocktail is a Gin and Tonic, but when I was unable to drink anymore, I still wanted to enjoy this refreshing drink in all of it's botanical goodness. SO, my boyfriend and I set out to devise a combination of elements that would imitate a Gin and Tonic as accurately as we could. The conclusion is an herbal delight, fresh and pungent. It is sure to liven up tastebuds on a hot day, and can be enjoyed by anyone!
Get ready for warmer weather with a Lavender Vanilla Bourbon!
Make your simple syrup:
In a small pot, combine the water, honey, and sugar. Stir over medium-high heat until the honey and sugar completely disintegrates. Add the vanilla bean (scraped insides and the pod as well) and lavender, stirring to submerge them into the liquid. Bring to a low boil for 10-15 minutes, then cover and remove from heat. Cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup, removing the vanilla bean pod and the lavender. Keep refrigerated in a covered bottle for up to a week.
Time to Drink:
Fill my glass with ice. Add the simple syrup, bourbon, lime juice, and ginger ale. Stir until well combined. Add a slice of lime for garnish and drink.
I absolutely fell in love with lavender lemonade when I first tried it at the Ballard farmers market in Seattle, WA. Since then I have been introduced to more flavored versions I adore, This recipe is my top 3 faves. Simple syrup is super easy to make , and flavoring it with what is in season is a fun way to capture the moment.
