“The Early Picnic” Signature Cocktail:
2 oz tequila
3/4 oz meyer lemon shrub
1/4 oz lime juice
The Molly Jane
1 oz Victoria Gin
1 oz Gifford’s Grapefruit
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz lavender simple syrup
Shake all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into glass. Garnish with lavender sprig and sage leaf.
Lavender Simple Syrup
Boil equal parts sugar and water (adjust the sugar to taste). When boiling, add 2 teaspoons lavender buds. Reduce for 30-40 minutes. Pour through fine strainer to remove lavender buds. Refrigerate to store in a sealed container for up to three weeks.
Triple Berry Ombre Cocktail
Berry Vodka (we used raspberry, but any flavor will do!)
Blackberries (for decoration)
Pour 3oz flavored vodka into a wine or cocktail glass
Pour in 2oz Champagne
Pour in 2 oz Cranberry Juice
Top with a skewer of blackberries or raspberries and drink up!
NOTE: This cocktail is super simple - you just have to do everything in order to get the Ombre color. You can adjust the ratio of alcohol to juice to your liking - just remember to keep things in order.
