  • Chill Your Glass:
  • Begin by chilling a cocktail glass. You can do this by filling it with ice water and setting it aside while you prepare the drink.
  • Mix the Ingredients:
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, St. Germain, lavender syrup and lime juice.
  • Shake:
  • Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. Shaking not only chills the drink but also dilutes it slightly, balancing the flavors.
  • Prepare the Glass:
  • Empty the ice water from your cocktail glass and strain the mixture into it. A fine mesh strainer can be used if you prefer a smoother texture without any ice shards.
  • Garnish and Serve:
  • Garnish with a sprig of fresh lavender or a thin lime wheel to enhance the visual appeal and add a hint of extra aroma.
  • Enjoy:
  • Your Lavender French Gimlet is ready to be enjoyed! This cocktail is perfect for a relaxing evening or a sophisticated gathering.
