This delightful cocktail combines sweet, sparkling apple cider with romantic lavender for a perfect Valentine's Day drink!
So you've got your bouquet of forever flowers and that box of fair trade chocolate. Why not make your Valentine's day even more sustainable with a tasty organic libation?
This is based on a drink that my friend Ally told me about: a lovely-sounding cocktail that she had at a bar in London when she lived there years ago. The original drink used lavender infused vodka, and if you'd rather go that route, there's a handy tutorial on how to infuse your own vodka over at Crafting a Green World. Just substitute 1.5oz infused vodka in place of the booze in the recipe below.
In a highball glass filled with ice, combine:
Top off your glass with:
- organic sparkling apple cider, like this one from Martinelli's
- a squeeze of organic lemon
Give everything a good stir, garnish with a slice of organic lemon, and serve!
