Lavender Mule | Cocktail Party

Lavender Mule

Lavender Mule cocktail with vodka, lime juice, ginger syrup, lavender syrup, and ginger beer

The classic Moscow Mule is such a flexible template for inventive riffs, like this Lavender Mule from Kathleen Hawkins at Wright & Co in Detroit. All it takes is a touch of lavender syrup to transform the ginger standard into something heady, floral, and bursting with the scent of spring.

We usually prefer our lavender syrup with its natural golden-brown coloring – but in a nearly-clear drink like this, we have to admit that the artificial purple color in some syrups looks quite striking.

Instructions

Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the ginger beer. Garnish with a sprig of fresh lavender or a wheel of lime.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
