Laura’s rendition: Chop up a handful of lavender blossoms, allowing them to release their aromas and oils. Muddle blooms with 2 ounces of gin, an ounce of simple syrup, a 1/2 ounce of Crème Yvette, and 3/4 ounce of lemon juice.
(As a side note, Crème Yvette is a very old spirit that just recently returned to the market; it can be tough to find. You can order it from Astor Wines & Spirits, or, if you can’t find it, you can substitute Crème de Violette.)
After shaking and straining these ingredients in a Collins glass, top with soda and garnish with fresh lavender blossoms.
