Hummingbird | Cocktail Party

Hummingbird

It’s not easy to find recipes for cocktails with lavender bitters – which is a shame, since they bring such a lovely floral perfume to a drink. So we were understandably excited when Imbibe magazine published an article all about lavender bitters and the inventive bartenders who use them.

That article included this recipe for a Hummingbird, from bartender John Stanton at Chicago’s Sable Kitchen & Bar, and it’s the perfect introduction to this fragrant, delicate ingredient. The honey and orange blossom water turn the drink into a full-on bouquet, all tied together with a lemon-yellow ribbon.
