Pure Joy Catering's Lavender Lady Cocktail

we start with fresh local organic culinary lavender

This is one of our most popular specialty cocktails. We just got a few more requests for the recipe so I thought more people might like it so I’ve made a batch recipe for parties. Lavender is just SO Santa Barbara and it’s fun to use it for entertaining.

We get culinary lavender at the Farmer’s Market. I prefer the Royal Velvet lavender, one of the sweetest Lavandula angustifolias varieties which are best for culinary purposes, but all lavender is eatable. 

 To make the lavender simple syrup;

In a saucepan combine the sugar with an equal amount of water, bring the water to a boil over moderate heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, bruise & add the lavender. Cook the syrup, undisturbed, for 20 min. Let the syrup cool until it is lukewarm and strain it very well. Chill

To make a 60 ounce Pitcher of Lavender Lady Cocktails;

 4 cups vodka or gin

1 cup st germaine

1 cup lavender simple syrup

1 cup lemon juice

stir well.

Prepare the Glasses run a lime wedge around the rim to give it a bit of flavor.

Fill the glasses with ice.

Top with the blend above & garnish w a sprig of culinary lavender & a spring of mint or lime wedge.
