I had to think of at least one more way to use the lavender simple syrup that I just made. This is my favorite martini I've ever made, so if you made the lavender syrup last week, I highly recommend this recipe! It's tart, sweet and lightly floral.
Lavender Citrus Martini, serves one
Lavender Simple Syrup (recipe here)
In a shaker, combine 2 ounces Gin, 2 ounces St-Germain, 1 ounce simple syrup and the juice of one lemon and one orange. Rim a glass with lavender simple syrup and sugar. Use the peel of an orange for a curly garnish. Shake, pour and serve.
I’ve never had that problem. Sorry I can’t help with that one.
Just wondering if you ever have problems with your cocktail shaker not opening. I have a metal one that gets stuck after I shake it and looking on the web I found that a lot of people have that problem
Mmm looks lovely and simple too 🙂

I always want to try to make cocktails but I always end up just having simple g&ts!
Yumo..making me thirsty just thinking about it.
It’s noon somewhere!
I made the syrup and love it with espresso & almond milk 😉 but now I have a wonderful cocktail to make tonight! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
Beautiful photos! This sounds absolutely wonderful!

Love a good happy hour on Fridays. This is no exception. CHEERS!!
This looks like an amazing cocktail. I can’t wait to put together a bar in my place and try this drink out!
Yum! That sounds amazing. Going to have to try that while it’s still moderately summery outside. 🙂
I’m always amazed at how you guys come up with refreshing ideas to feature
Awe- thank you Sandi. It’s my first one!!
I love it when mixed with something stronger (like Gin or Whiskey) but if you like sweeter drinks a lot of people enjoy it with Champagne.
Eeek! That’s so sweet Sara!
I cant wait to finish work and start my happy hour!! Love this recipe thanks for sharing 🙂
A gin martini is definitely my favorite! Thanks for a great way to start the weekend. I’ll need it. It will be hot here in Los Angeles.
It makes me want to have one right now. It’s Friday night already here in Ireland 🙂
