This Blackberry Lavender Cocktail is fruity, light, sweet, and with a subtle herbal flavour. Perfect summer cocktail to celebrate Friday!Jump to Recipe
Helloooo everyone! Happy Friday! We should definitely celebrate it with a delightful boozy cocktail. Besides, according to our forecast, tomorrow our heat wave will be over. Finally, after almost a week. Please forecast team, don’t let us down with your forecast haha.
As you probably noticed, I’ve been obsessed with boozy cocktails this summer. It was hard tot no notice, right? Specifically, I am all about light, fruity, and herbal infused drinks. There’s a full list of the recently posted ideas in case you’re interested.
This sounds like a fun cocktail party, isn’t it?!
Blackberry Lavender Cocktail
This Blackberry Lavender Cocktail is also light and fruity. I consider this a delightful dessert-style cocktail. For this cocktail, you will need extra dry Martini Vermouth; however, you can swap for rum if you prefer a stronger version. Either way, this will be luscious!
Obviously, you will need to make Lavender Simple Syrup first. But I wouldn’t say the herbal flavour is quite distinctive. Blackberries play the predominant role here. By the way, if you don’t like lavender, you can easily use other herbs such as fresh mint, basil, or tarragon here.
But I certainly hope you’re fine with lavender, and you will try this Blackberry Lavender Cocktail soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Cheers and happy weekend!
