Hi Loves!

Welcome back and thanks for checking out this new blog post, so, let's get into it! The kind of post I'm writing today is a new series I'll be creating at least once a month or so. I'll be adding a new page to my site titled "Honey & Lavender." It will contain all related ideas, things, looks, and flavors honey and lavender-related. I wanted to do this for a while now and so I bring to you the first of many Miss Honey & Lavender signature posts.

Well, now that announcement is out of the way, I have to mention how much I enjoyed making this content this time around. Maybe that's because my favorite liquor is involved, Gin and maybe I had a little to much fun making a mess in my kitchen making cocktails all afternoon with my dear friend Paige

*Disclaimer I curated this recipe and images are my own taken by myself of fellow blogger friend Paige from www.tequliastainedtee' This post is not sponsored I just personally love drinking these types of acholic beverages. I prefer to use local Oregon ingredients and companies as much I can to help support my community and economy especially since it's supporting my local business in my neighborhood.


1. Dried lavender to make the simple syrup & fresh lavender
2.  Two tablespoons of honey & honey sticks for garnish
3. Two lemons for 1/2  to 1 cup lemon juice
6. Ice


To make a simple and proper honey & lavender bee's knees cocktail you must first get all the ingredients together and prepped (this will set you up for success). Have your shaker ready and ice inside ready to go for the shaking. The thing that takes the longest is making the dried lavender simple syrup so do this first. To make the simple syrup get a pot on the stove and boil 3 cups of water. Once the water is boiled turn off your stove and add the 1 cup dried lavender and stir, let it steep like tea for 5-10 mins. This is needed to let the syrup cool down while you prep the other ingredients. Next, I would use your juicer and squeeze for at least a 1/2 cup to a cup of lemon juice. I used fresh lemons but lemon juice or even a strong lemonade would work well too. Measure out all ingredients separately then add to the cocktail shaker filled with ice. Once you strain the lavender from the simple syrup add it into a jar with a lid for easy storage (this will last up to one week). 

Next combine your 1/2 cup lavender simple syrup, two tablespoons honey, 1/2 lemon juice, 2-3 parts gin, 2-3 drops of lavender bitters, ice, then shaker her up. To serve simply fill two clean glasses with ice then strain into it and feel free to add fresh lavender for aroma, a honey stick for garnish or eating and top with a straw. I like using reusable straws like these to save on waste. All that's left is to sit back and enjoy with a friend or loved one because this recipe makes two drinks. Tada!

I hope you guys have fun making these yummy sweet delicious drinks. I'd love it if you could tag me on Instagram as well so I can see your amazing creations. Cheers to the holidays and welcome December. I hope this might inspire you to make something special.

Happy Holidays!
