We can make classic cocktails competently enough and Shaun's ability to crack open a beer or a bottle of wine...unrivaled. But those are ordinary drinks. What about our own signature drink? One we could call our own. Maybe literally... because you named it after yourself?
We just HAD to come up with a beautiful, feminine signature cocktail onboard for Boat Babe. After trying several recipes (perhaps to my detriment) I settled on this pretty lavender infused one to raise a glass to.
We wanted something fresh and not seasonal, one that can sipped on year round in our beautiful summer climate. Lavender reminds me of our many trips to France and the mint also grows in bushels by the roadside there too. Blueberries are the perfect antioxidant (tongue in cheek for that one lol) and a splash of soda water for the bubbles and a little hydration. Plus, it's so easy to make! Here's what you'll need:
4 pumps of Lavender syrup (I ordered mine on amazon) you can make your own too
1 shot of Gin (I like Tanqueray)
Dash of lemon
We love this syrup from France
Add 4 pumps of lavender syrup into a shaker over ice
Add your shot of Gin (measured?..of course! lol)
Mix with Lavender and ice
Shake and pour
Add Soda water and a squeeze of lemon. It really takes just the right amount to counteract the sweetness
Garnish as you wish!
And enjoy!! Cheers....it's like a little present you give to yourself :-)
