I have adapted this Lavender Lemon Drop cocktail a bit in the method from the way Tru Organic printed it. The thing I found I wanted to do was lightly muddle the lavender in the simple syrup to release its wonderful essence into the drink just a touch more. Another option is to use a lavender-infused simple syrup, which is very easy to make. One thing with any variation is that it is a fantastic adaptation of the popular Lemon Drop Martini in which the lavender adds depth and calms a bit of the tart lemon juice. I find this a far more palatable Martini.
