Summer isn’t over yet, so make the most of it but stay safe during these COVID times. Get in that one last hike, picnic in the park, day at the beach, backyard barbecue, or just a camping trip.
Remember to keep your circle small and limit activities to 10 people, while maintaining a social distance of 6 feet from others. Most important, wear a mask. It feels inconvenient at times, but it’s your best defense against contracting the virus.
As you soak up the sun, and enjoy the fresh air, serve up this refreshing cocktail and drink your summer away. The Lavender Collins Cocktail is simple yet stunningly refreshing for those long summer days and nights when you just want to kick back, read a good book, and reflect on the year that has been.
- 1 ½ oz gin
- 1 oz lemon juice
- ½ oz lavender simple syrup
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake. Strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice. Top with sparkling water. Garnish with a lemon slice and lavender sprig.
