Luscious Lavender & Lemon Cooler Cocktail

Luscious Lavender & Lemon Cooler Cocktail

b2ap3_thumbnail_lavender-lemon-cocktail.jpgHere at Quality Garden Supplies we love all things British and this Friday we got a little bit of that Friday Feeling.  To make the most and celebrate the wonderful weekend weather we challenged ourselves to make an inventive Summer Cooler Cocktail using key ingredients’ from our own gardens.  The one we all loved the most would be posted here on our blog. 

And so our winner is…Luscious Lavender & Lemon Cooler Cocktail


  • 60ml Gin
  • 40ml Lemon Juice
  • 40ml Lavender Syrup
  • Soda water or tonic water (which ever you prefer, we used soda)
  • Ice
  • Beautiful Cocktail Glass
  • Lavender for garnish

 Pour the gin, lemon juice and syrup into a cocktail shaker with the ice and shake well or pour directly over ice into a glass and stir gently.

Garnish with a lavender bud.

 For the Lavender Syrup:


  • 200ml Water
  • 200ml Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh or dried lavender buds

Combine all ingredients in a small pan and cook over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved.  Boil for a further 2-3 minutes until the liquid thickens slightly.  Leave to cool and then remove the buds and strain into a bottle.

You could also give this as a gift.  Best to keep cool or refrigerated.
