Hello everyone – I hope you are ready for Friday? Even though, it was a short week for me (Thanks to the extended weekends), I am ready. Oh boy, I am so ready! Definitely, that’s a good reason for a little celebration. And this Lavender Orange Gin Cocktail perfectly fits the bill, I think.
As many of you noticed, I’ve been sharing many summer cocktail ideas this season. Many of them have been with a botanical hint such as lilacs, rose, and lavender. Indeed, I’ve already posted three lavender ideas you might also like. Check them out please!
Lavender Orange Gin Cocktail
As you can imagine, these ideas are quite similar yet different. For instance, this Lavender Orange Gin Cocktail is bolder and stronger but still delicately sweet and delightful. If you love lavender, which nicely pairs with gin, this is your kind of cocktail. Of course, as always, you can adjust the idea to your liking. My husband, for instance, discard most of the ice and ads more gin as he prefers stronger cocktails (And as he says, to “Hide the lavender flavour” lol.) Also, if you don’t have orange liquor on hands, you can simply use orange juice instead. But of course the liquor adds something extra special!
Also, this is my last summer cocktail ideas as I will sharing some seasonal flavours soon. I am talking about lavender. Just kidding – of course, about apples.
So, I hope you like this refreshing cocktail, and you will it a try 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.
