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.
- 2 oz Gin (I prefer Tanqueray)
- 2 oz Tonic Water
- 1 oz (or more) Honey Lavender Syrup
- Lemon for garnish
- Fill glass with ice.
- Pour gin, tonic water and honey lavender syrup over the ice.
- Stir and add more syrup if necessary.
- Garnish with lemon.
Cheers to the sweet summer supper and Labor Day weekend! Thanks once again to Susannah, Julia, Asharae for being such wonderful collaborators and Leigh Brinkley & Bill Owens for the use of their beautiful home and backyard.
I am so ready for the weekend. I’ll be working on a lot of fun projects and I cannot wait. I will not be posting on Monday, but check back Tuesday for some fall inspiration. Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
