On the Rocks: Lavender Lemon Drop

Kelly  |  June 03


Today I’m super excited to introduce Melissa’s new column, On the Rocks. As she mentioned yesterday, she loves fabulous cocktails and she’s darn good at making them too. We had a little party a few weeks ago with some vendor friends to make sure these drinks are just as tasty as the are pretty. Enjoy!


  • 1 ½ shots of citrus vodka
  • Splash of lavender-infused simple syrup (directions below)
  • Heavy splash of home-made sweet n’ sour (directions below)
  • Splash of Lemoncello (optional)
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon wedge
  • Lavender tinted sugar rim

*Served shaken and up in a martini glass (can also be served on the rocks)

Lavender-infused simple syrup


  • Equal parts boiling water and sugar
  • Fresh lavender

*Add sugar to boiling water. After dissolved, place fresh lavender in simple syrup and let sit overnight. Strain before using.

Homemade sweet n’ sour


  • Equal parts simple syrup (plain) and lemon juice

*Add ingredients together and refrigerate

And to see even more On the Rocks cocktail ideas they’re right here.
