Lavender has a distinctive floral taste with hints of mint and rosemary, and when used in this one-of-a-kind cocktail, it is perfect for spring!
For the Lavender Love cocktail, I incorporated one of my favorite spirits, Empress 1908 Gin with lavender syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and sparkling lemon water for a refreshing floral cocktail.
Empress 1908 Gin is one of my favorite spirits, and with its purple hue, it is perfect for mixing up beautiful drinks that WOW!
This amazing gin originates from the Victoria Distillers in British Columbia and it’s crafted with eight botanicals including juniper, grapefruit peel, butterfly pea blossoms, and the Fairmont Empress Blend Tea in small batch copper pots.

Empress 1908 Gin has more of a botanical-forward taste, so it mixes well with fresh, floral, and bright ingredients. It even changes colors when you add citrus to it! Try it for yourself in the Lavender Love Cocktail. Click here to purchase Empress 1908 Gin.
Let’s mix up the Lavender Love Cocktail! Start by combining sugar, dried lavender, and lemon zest on a shallow plate. Coat the cocktail glass rim with lemon juice so the sugar mix can stick. Then submerge the cocktail glass in sugar mix to coat the rim.
For the cocktail, add Empress 1908 Gin, lemon, lavender syrup, vanilla extract, and ice to a cocktail shaker. Then shake until the outside of the shaker chilled. Next, strain the mixture into the cocktail glass you prepared with the rim. Finally, top that with lemon sparkling water. If desired, you can garnish with a lemon slice and lavender.
