Today’s Hump Day drink recipe comes from the blog Coco + Kelley.  Not only is it pretty but it packs a delicate punch with its vodka base.  It requires a bit more effort than your average pour into shaker and shake but for a girls night in, it will definitely leave a lasting impression.

The Lavender Honey Cream

  • 1.5 oz. Square One Botanical Vodka
  • 1 oz. heavy cream
  • 1 oz. egg white (pasteurized – or leave out, but it will change the consistency a bit)
  • 1 oz. lavender honey simple syrup
  • lavender blossoms for garnish

First let’s make the simple syrup by combining 1/4 cup lavender honey with 1/4 cup boiling water. Stir gently until honey is dissolved. Let cool and store in a squeeze bottle.

For the cocktail – Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker & fill with ice. Shake gently for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a few lavender blossoms. Serves 1.
