From: H. Joseph Ehrmann, Elixir, San Francisco. Yield: 1 serving.
1.5 oz. Square One Organic Vodka
1 oz. organic heavy cream
1 oz. organic egg white
1 oz. lavender honey syrup*
Add all ingredients over ice in a shaker; shake gently for 30 seconds. This makes a thick, creamy cocktail without too much ice.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a piece of lavender. This adds to the nose with each sip.
*Lavender honey syrup is available in specialty stores. To make syrup, boil one cup of water and slowly stir in 1 cup of lavender honey until dissolved. Lower heat and reduce for 3 minutes. Let cool and add to a squeeze bottle.
