Lavender Cream Gin Cocktail: Recipe

RECIPES | This lavender cream gin cocktail is a light, floral cocktail that works best with a gin that has light botanicals. The lavender and honey evoke summer days in Provence, while the egg white and heavy cream give the cocktail a silky, creamy texture. Despite its summer leanings, this is a drink that works well any time of the year.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Serves 2


Ingredients

  • 4ml lavender bitters
  • 90ml mild gin
  • 10g honey
  • 60ml milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 30ml heavy cream
  • ice
  • dried lavender to decorate (optional)

Method

  1. Place the lavender bitters, honey, gin, milk, egg white, heavy cream and ice into a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake well for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Pour the cocktail into two separate glasses via a strainer.

Notes

Lavender bitters can be found at most bottle shops. If you can’t find them, another option is to infuse the gin with dry lavender for a few days, but it won’t have quite the same flavour.
