Lavender Martini Recipe

Happy Hour: Lavender Martini

Much like hibiscus, lavender has become an increasingly popular ingredient at the table. I'll admit that when I first tried lavender in food, I wasn't crazy about it, as I'd always associated the flower's aroma with spa treatments.

Lavender first began to grow on me last November, when I tried Loft, a new line of flavored organic liqueurs and proclaimed the line's lavender infusion as my favorite. When a friend sent me a gift of lavender-and-thyme cookie mix for my birthday, I discovered I could appreciate those, too. I realized that, when used sparingly, lavender can lend an herbaceous, lemony quality to food that's floral, yet not overwhelmingly so.

@spacebear -- that's how I used to feel! This one seems different to me, though; it's subtle and sweet.

I love incorporating non-food items into food... I recently tried a cucumber martini - DELICIOUS; and a rose sorbet - so soft and sweet, it was the perfect end to a meal.

I learned I like lavender syrup. The Dessert Truck (in NYC) stops in front of my office on most days and they had a dessert of fresh chopped figs, mascarpone and drizzle it all with a healthy dose of lavender syrup. I would eat a bucket of this mix if I could.

Ill try it The other day i bought topaz flavoured vodka (small expensive salmon pink bottle about £25 for 500ml) and it was fantastic.. BUT these flavoured spirits have to be mixed. Straight the flavour is lost.. mized with juice or other vodka it works!
