Lavender Collins Cocktail

Created by: Hannah Hagler, Champagne Lifestyle

There’s something refreshing about a cocktail with a mix of floral and citrus flavors. This Lavender Collins Cocktail is the perfect mix of sweet (from a lavender-infused syrup) and tart (from lemon juice). The club soda topping gives it a nice sparkling twist.

2 minutes | Prep time: 5 minutes | Serves: 1
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 oz. club soda
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh or dried lavender flowers
  • 2 cups sugar

  1. Bring water and lavender to a boil in a saucepan, using a wooden spoon to stir in the sugar until it’s completely dissolved.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow syrup to cool. After it's cooled, strain the lavender from the syrup. The syrup will keep for up to one week in the refrigerator.
  4. Stir gin, lemon juice and syrup in a glass or in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and top with club soda.
  5. Garnish with a lavender stalk and slice of lemon.
