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.

Ingredients

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
