Cucumber Lavender Sour 23 Mar 2010
12:37 pm

I used lavender leaves and blossoms from my garden. About 1/4 teaspoon fresh leaves, maybe 3 or 4 blossoms. Then added it to my simple syrup mix. Came out a little light on the lavender flavor. Play with it to get the taste you desire. This drink is marvelous. I did muddle a stick or 2 of fresh ginger root with the cucumber, and double strained into my sour glass. I did not have lavender bitters, so I used peychaud's aromatic bitters instead.

Robert, I didn't see you put the orange bitters in the Dry Martini. It is in your recipe though. In a dry martini ora dry vodka martini, do you still add a dash of orange bitters?
