Just in time for the weekend…or tonight if your having a particularly good Thursday..or a bad. Anyway to the point. I have been playing around with using the lavender syrup recipe here in cocktails. And you know what? It goes soooo well with vodka and lemon…

It’s a really nice summery drink, and so easy to make.

so here is what you need.

A cocktail shaker, or if you have misplaced yours, a jar will do…anything really


Lemon juice

Lavender Syrup

Lemon wedge

lemonade or soda water



Ok so pour in  2 generous shots of vodka and add a handful of ice.

squeeze a lemon until you get at 1 tablespoon of juice. Add this to the vodka ice mix.

Add 2 tablespoons of lavender syrup and top up with lemonade or soda water.

Now give it a good shake!! Feel free to do a dance too!

pour into a fancy old fashioned champagne glass, or a tumbler.. and garnish with a lemon wedge.

You get about 2 drinks from this mix.


This was the perfect balance of vodka,lemon and lavender for me. But depending on how you like it…just add more of each.

This is sooo easy to drink..but do drink responsibly

And have a good Thursday night…
