It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a cocktail! I’m looking forward to telling you all about this hard lemonade recipe – because I’m obsessed with one of the ingredients in it: lavender syrup.

It seems to be trendy to use lavender these days in beverages and cocktails, and for good reason. When I first tried a lavender flavored beverage I thought it would be weird, but I was wrong.

The flavor was subtle and the smell as you’re drinking is kind of amazing. Of course I’m assuming you love the lavender smell. Who doesn’t?
