This recipe combines the refreshing zest of lemon with the subtle, sweet floral notes of lavender, creating a sophisticated, refreshing cocktail perfect for summer evenings or special occasions.


  • 2 oz Vodka for a clean, smooth base.
  • 1 oz Lavender Syrup to bring a floral sweetness.
  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice for that essential citrus tang.
  • 1/4 oz Orange Liqueur about 1/4 ounce, to add depth and complexity.
  • 2 Dashes Lavender Bitters enhancing the lavender profile.
  • Sugar: For rimming the glass adding a sweet touch to every sip.


  • Prepare Your Glass: Begin by spreading sugar on a small plate. Moisten the rim of your martini glass with a lemon wedge, then dip into the sugar to coat. Set aside.
  • Mix the Cocktail: In a shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, lavender syrup, lemon juice, orange liqueur, and lavender bitters. Shake well until the outside of the shaker feels cold.
  • Serve: Strain the mixture into your prepared glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a sprig of lavender.


Pro Tips:
  • Making Lavender Syrup: Create your syrup in advance to allow it to cool and infuse thoroughly. A basic ratio is 1 cup water to 1 cup sugar with 2 tablespoons of dried lavender. Simmer until sugar dissolves, then let it steep off the heat for 20 minutes before straining.
  • Adjusting Sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter or more sour martini, adjust the amount of lavender syrup or lemon juice to taste.
