Summer Rose

Summer Rose cocktail with blueberries, lavender syrup, gin, and lemon juice

Lavender and blueberries are a beautiful combination, and the Summer Rose from Andy Whitehead from the Oh So Beautiful Paper blog shows off just how perfectly they work together.

We prefer lavender syrup with its natural straw-gold color, rather than syrups with purple food coloring added, because it lets the gorgeous color of the blueberries show through. Either way, though, it’s guaranteed to be a lovely drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the blueberries and the syrup at the bottom of your shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Double-strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
