Vodka- Pairs perfectly with lemon flavor because of its neutral taste and ability to take on other flavors.
Freshly Squeezed Lemons- Must have ingredient for Lemonade Cocktails. Freshly squeezing the lemons ensures that you will get amazing taste!
Lavender Simple Syrup- For subtle floral tones and added sweetness. My DIY Lavender syrup is highly recommended for this recipe, but if you don't have time to make it, you can use a store bought Lavender syrup.
French Lemonade or Lemon Perrier- For a little bubbly fizz under your nose & added citrus. I love the extra lemon flavor here. They have some great varieties at World Market.
For another lemonade inspired cocktail, try my Strawberry Lemonade Vodka.

Lavender has a strong smell and a really unique floral taste. This recipe uses a lavender simple syrup, where the lavender steeps in the sugar water. When the syrup is diluted with the other flavors, it becomes so subtle, but also delicious.
Homemade lavender syrup actually has a yellow tint. The purple you see sometimes is added from food coloring. You can add a drop of purple in if you would like, just be careful you don't do too much and change the taste.
