So here it is
You will need:(to make one glass)
1oz Monin lavender syrup
1 measure Hendricks Gin
juice of half a lemon (per glass)
Ok, so here's how:
Place your syrup and lemon juice in the bottom of a highball glass (I used tall Moroccan tea glasses).
Add lots of ice and pour your gin over the top. Top up with soda, stir and sip.
I was expecting a real hit of lavender. I was pleasantly surprised. I got the lavender flavour AFTER; a real after-shock. Not a punch in the mouth, but a gentle caress of flavour on the palette. I tried it out on a friend for lunch in the sun. She was won. It's gentle enough to drink during the day if that's what you're after, subtle enough to be elegantly served on a summer's evening in the garden.
PS apologies for lack of photos. I'm having a NIGHTMARE with Picasa3. Won't download, won't save; it's throwing all it's toys out of the pram. I'm not impressed.
