In Distillery Events, Recipe - Distiller's Gin No. 6

lavender collinsWe participate in events at the Chicago Botanic Garden a few times a year, and coming up with a cocktail that matches the beauty of the setting is a challenge that we relish. This year, for their annual Evening with Orchids, we chose the Lavender Fizz. It’s a delicious take on a Tom Collins, one of the great old cocktails from the late 1800’s. The lavender compliments our modern dry gin perfectly, and it’s as beautiful as it is refreshing!

1½ oz Distiller’s Gin No. 6
¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
½ oz Lavender Simple Syrup
Club Soda

Add gin, lemon juice, and syrup to a Collins glass and stir. Fill the glass with ice and top with soda; stir again briefly. Garnish with fresh sprig of lavender or a lemon curl.
