The Summer Rose

Fresh, floral and light, this rosy sipper gets its blush from a dose of fresh blueberries.


2 oz. dry gin
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. lavender simple syrup (recipe below)
handful of fresh blueberries
Tools: muddler, shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe


Muddle the blueberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Add the gin, lemon and simple syrup. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe.


Lavender Simple Syrup
1/4 cup dried lavender
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Bruise lavender in plastic bag with a rolling pin. Add sugar to water and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add bruised lavender leaves and simmer for 5–10 minutes. Cool slightly. Buzz through the blender (hold a kitchen towel over the lid so it doesn't explode). Cool overnight and strain into a bottle. Keeps for 4 weeks refrigerated.
