Kentucky Woman

Its turned into summer and that brings the hankering for floral, fruity digestables.   I made a batch of lavender syrup a few weeks back and came up with a Lavender-Ginger Collins that was quite tasty.  However, I had a pile of leftover dried lavender even after making the syrup.  So what to do? The answer, of course, was to make more syrup!  This time, a honey-lavender, with a tasty drink courtesy of Liquidity Preference and Mixology Monday.  It was both refreshing and addictive.

Kentucky Woman

1 3/4 oz. bourbon
1/2 oz. lavender-honey syrup
1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
2 dashes orange bitters

Stir with ice and pour into cocktail glass.  Garnish with lemon peel.   (although I bet a sprig of fresh lavender would be pretty sweet…)
