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.

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!
