Sweet Summer Supper: Honey Lavender Gin & Tonic

Sweet Summer Supper: Lavender Honey Gin & Tonic

A gin and tonic is my favorite classic cocktail. It is simple to make and extremely refreshing. For the sweet summer supper I co-hosted with Susannah of Feast + West, Asharae of This Wild Season and Julia of Tag & Tibby, I decided to add some local honey and fresh lavender to this classic cocktail for the perfect summer drink. Kick back this Labor Day weekend with this refreshing drink in hand.
