Thinking about St. Patrick's day and how to add a little charm and luck of the Irish with a different twist. We came up with this drink to add a little Irish cheer and to celebrate with those who may be drinking green beer.
Lavender-Mint Lemonade Cocktail
1 cup peppermint tea, brewed
6 Tbsp Lavender Lemonade
2 shots vodka
1 Tbsp Lavender Simple Syrup
1 cups seltzer water
1 bottle ginger beer
Lemon, Lavender Cocktail Pick and mint for garnish
Combine 1 cup mint tea, 1 Tbsp lavender simple syrup, 2 shots of vodka and your lavender lemonade mix together until combined and powder dissolved, add your seltzer water and stir. Set aside.
In 2 cocktail glasses filled with crushed ice pour in your lemonade mint base to fill your glass half full. Top the remaining cocktail glasses with ginger beer. Garnish your glass with a lemon wedge, mint leaf and a lavender cocktail pick.
Both the mint and lavender are subtle in this drink, if you want more mint flavor double up on your bags on the brewed tea. If you want more lavender flavor double up on the Lavender Simple Syrup.
