Now, after the busy and stressful holiday season has come to a close, I recommend we all take some time for ourselves to relax. Sure, your favorite go-to cocktail is always a good choice at the close of the day, but a Cucumber Lavender Sour will wrap your soul like a relaxing bath, while refreshing you from the inside out. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t need a little relaxing refreshment this time of year?
Cucumber Lavender Sour
1 ½ oz Hendrick’s gin
¼ oz Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
¾ oz Sonoma Lavender Syrup
½ oz fresh lemon juice
Dash lavender bitters
Fresh lavender and cucumber slice, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the cucumber and lavender syrup. Add the other ingredients with ice and shake well. Pour into a tall glass over ice and garnish with the fresh lavender and cucumber. Sit back, relax and relish in a refreshing cocktail well made.
