Lavender Mojito

Hello everyone – happy Saturday! Normally, I don’t post on weekends. But since this week I’ve been spending too much time (And apparently throwing too many tantrums lol) because of technical issues, I decided to have another delightful recipe.

It’s already September, and all of a sudden, I started feeling fall vibes. I mean one day it was super hot and humid, and now it’s so refreshing. Indeed, I love this time of the year, but it was just such a rapid change.

But even though the days (and particularly nights) are getting fresher, there’s still a room for some refreshments. Besides, I am not moving to anything apple, pumpkin, anyways, so you’re kind of stuck with me guys for another few weeks :)

Also, it’s Labour Day and the extended weekend, and I bet many of you will have a party or picnic. I know for many people it’s the weekend they are wrapping up their grilling season. Now, I am checking our forecast for the entire weekend, and I assume David is going to use his grill a lot lol.

Jokes apart, I believe this Lavender Mojito would be a perfect drink to celebrate Labour Day (and calendar fall, too.) It’s super refreshing, subtly herbal, and deliciously sweet. Just keep in mind you will need to make this Lavender Simple Syrup first.

And you can also check other fancy cocktails for your party.

    Your photos are really and truly extraordinary! I just stopped by for the view. I’m one of those old weirdos who don’t like flowers in stuff other than my garden, and my vases. I have tried a botanical gin – G’Vine – that I liked, but just one gin and tonic and that was enough for me. I wish I liked lavender ice cream, but I can think of hundreds of flavors I’d choose before that. But your photos are sensational!!!

    Haha – you guessed correctly, Ben! I had the grill going almost every day this past weekend. The only day I didn’t turn it on was because I had the smoker going instead. :-) (It was the first time this year we’d made ribs.) I love the color of this cocktail! And the herbal tones would be quite nice in a drink. You know I don’t often go to lavender in foods, but in drinks I could see this working quite well! Cheers!
