Lavender is a flowering plant of the mint family that is not native to any one continent. Believe it or not, lavender is found everywhere from Europe to Asia, and can even be found in Africa and on the Canary Islands.

It has many modern uses, but one of its main uses is that it is an oil that has medicinal properties. Specifically, it has anti-septic and anti-inflammatory uses, and even has been blended into teas and been used in cooking for centuries now. It is therefore no surprise that the unique plant has been transformed into martini, like so many other foods and flavors.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces of gin
  • ½ ounce of dry vermouth
  • ½ ounce lavender simple syrup
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

Lavender has so many uses that it is truly amazing to think that one plant has been so useful for so long. The flower has been even referenced by ancient Greeks, and is mentioned in the Bible more than once. There is even a color named after the shade of the most popular species of the flower, which shows just how embedded the flower is in popular culture. It is even used as a way to make homes smell better, and is often used as a flavor for everything from tea to hair conditioner to air freshener.

It is only right that one of the most common flowers in the world have the distinction of becoming a martini, the same way that many of humans’ most favorite flavors have transformed into sophisticated martinis. There is, therefore, only one garnish that truly would make sense for a lavender martini: yes, you guessed it – a sprig of lavender! It doesn’t matter if it’s a night out with the girls, or you are attempting to maintain a floral theme at a party – the lavender martini might be the cocktail to serve/order!
