Lavender Old Fashioned

Lavender Old Fashioned cocktail with bourbon, lavender syrup, and lavender bitters

When we use lavender syrup, we tend to pair it with clear spirits like gin or vodka, and plenty of bright citrus juice. But lavender is equally wonderful with brown spirits, like in the Lavender Old Fashioned from NYC restaurant Miss Ada.

Miss Ada’s recipe calls for Angostura bitters, a classic ingredient in an Old Fashioned. We’ve also had it with lavender bitters, and prefer it that way – they don’t run the risk of overpowering the delicate flavor of lavender the way aromatic bitters can.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
