Enjoy the refreshing Lavender Gin Sour, a perfect balance of floral and tart. A must-try recipe for a unique drink that impresses.


  • 2 oz gin you can choose a good-quality gin that complements floral flavors
  • 3/4 oz lemon juice using fresh is better
  • 1/2 oz lavender syrup
  • 1 egg white Optional, for that silky texture and frothy top
  • lavender sprigs and lemon twist for garnish


  • Prep:
  • If you haven’t already, prepare your lavender simple syrup ahead of time. It involves boiling equal parts water and sugar with a tablespoon of dried lavender for about 5 minutes, then cooling and straining it.
  • Combine Ingredients:
  • In a shaker, combine the gin, fresh lemon juice, lavender simple syrup, and egg white (if using). The egg white is not for flavor but adds a luxurious texture and froth to the drink.
  • Dry Shake:
  • First, shake the mixture without ice vigorously. This is called a dry shake, and it’s essential for emulsifying the egg white and getting that beautiful foam.
  • Wet Shake:
  • Add a handful of ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously. This cools the drink and further builds the foam.
  • Strain and Serve:
  • Strain the mixture into a chilled glass. If you’ve used egg white, you might want to use a fine mesh strainer to ensure a smooth pour.
  • Garnish:
  • Finish by garnishing with a sprig of lavender or a lemon twist to enhance the drink’s aroma and visual appeal.

    Looks nice, even I tried to craft with this flora with bees knees with lavender flavour
    Had a nice compliment from my guest but the rock/ eye presentation looks little odd with that beautiful flower.
