Lavender Lemon Martini

Because it’s Friday, the sun is shining, it’s 75 degrees in Portland! The end of the school year is in sight! It’s time to unwind, and begin the transition into summer. I have the perfect refreshing drink for you. It’s sweet, tart, cold, and delicious!

You will need:
Sugar
Vodka
Lemons
Agave syrup
Water
Crushed ice
Lavender sprigs

Directions:
Chill two martini glasses in the freezer. Place a few tablespoons of sugar onto a plate or other flat surface. Dip the rim of the chilled glass into the sugar. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with crushed ice, add 3 oz of vodka, 1/8 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 Tablespoon agave syrup, 3 oz  cold water. Shake well. Pour into sugar rimmed glasses. Add a lemon slice and a few sprigs of lavender to each martini.

Enjoy!

      • So, I was just going to ask you about using honey. I am not a fan of agave. Does the taste change much from one to the other? I have honey on hand and Lavender at the ready down the road. If it is just a matter of the blending, then I don’t care so much.
