Lavender Citrus Martini

Lavender Citrus Martini Recipe abeautifulmess.comI 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.

  • Hi Nadia,
    I’ve never had that problem. Sorry I can’t help with that one.

  • Hi!
    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

    Thanks!

  • I always want to try to make cocktails but I always end up just having simple g&ts!

  • 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.

  • 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.
    Enjoy!!! elsie

  • I’m not the biggest fan of lavender, but I love citrus and martinis, so I may have to try this. Well, it would be a vodka version 🙂
