We’re continuing the summer series of sharing some of the DIY summer cocktails we enjoy at home. This one is the Lavender Lace Cocktail. We first enjoyed this in the Marigny district of New Orleans at a jazz bar called Three Muses. We recreated it, putting our own spin on it, replacing the champagne with prosecco, and using our own dried lavender. It’s easy to make, and refreshing. It’s perfect for brunch, or after a night of indulging in a few too many cocktails. The Lavender Lace Cocktail is the choice the next day when you want something, but not a drink that is heavy.
Lavender Lace Cocktail
- Bottle of Prosecco
- ⅛ cup of sugar
- ⅛ cup of water
- Pinch of dry lavender
- Bring sugar and water to a boil.
- Stir in dried lavender, then remove from the heat.
- Let it cool down for a couple of minutes, then strain out the lavender.
- Let the syrup cool in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
- Once it is cool, you can use it immediately.
- Add 1 ½ teaspoon of lavender syrup to 6 ounces of prosecco for 1 cocktail
- You can use a sprig of lavender as garnish to make it nice and fancy.
Taking a sip of this cocktail will make you feel like you’re having brunch in New Orleans!
