The cold weather that is gripping most of the country is making us long for warm days of summer. To help us get in the summer spirit, we created a delicious and light cocktail to help you make it through the rest of the winter.
What you’ll need:
2 Oz Bacardi Light
1 Oz lavender syrup - see instructions how to make
1 1/2 to 2 Oz soda water
8 -10 mint leaves
For the Lavender syrup:
Lavender syrup recipe - boil equal parts water and sugar until light syrup consistency. Pull off flame and steep 8 to 10 oz of fresh lavender buds only in cheese cloth for 45 minutes or desired taste. It should be very floral in taste and color.
For the Cocktail:
Lightly muddle 3 to 4 blueberries, 2 lime wedges and 8 to 10 mint leaves. Be sure not to over muddle or you'll bruise the fruit. Add soda water, lavender syrup and scoop of ice to shaker. Lightly shake all ingredients for about 6 to 8 seconds. Serve and garnish with sugar cane stick.
