Brooklyn’s Finest is a bright, bracing lavender-ginger sour that was once served at the now-defunct Brooklyn Central Pizza restaurant.
Typically, a lavender cocktail calls for lavender syrup or lavender bitters – but the Brooklyn’s Finest takes things in a new direction, adding dried lavender flowers to the shaker for a rapid infusion of flavor and a gorgeous pink-violet hue.
- 2 parts Vodka
- ½ part Ginger syrup
- ½ part Lime juice
- 1 tbsp Dried Lavender
- 1 pinch White or Black pepper
Shake all ingredients with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a lime wedge or wheel, and a fresh or dried sprig of lavender if you’ve got it.
