The Lavender French Gimlet

April 8, 2017 (Last Updated: November 30, 2018)

One of my very favorite cocktails is the lavender French Gimlet. It’s so simple, so elegant. A lovely cocktail for any occasion.

When I learned how to make my own cocktail lavender, I added a few drops to my gimlet, and it was like walking through a lavender field on a summer afternoon. This Lavender French Gimlet is not too over powering – just a delicately, florally transformed version of an already elegant cocktail. You only need a few drops!

I make a nice big batch of it and give it away in tiny jars for Christmas presents each year. Such a small amount goes such a long way that by the time your friends and family have finished it, it will be a whole new year!
