It’s a “I need a drink” kind of Monday. I am sure you all know what I am talking about. And on this day, I want my Apple & Lavender Vodka Tonic. This fall drink brings home some lovely botanicals through the lavender & lemon and some sweet warmth via the apple & cinnamon. If you are also feeling like you want a drink that just comforts you, go for this alcoholic apple & lavender wonder and be jolly.
Apple & Lavender Vodka Tonic
Ingredients for 2
- 100 ml vodka (Grasovka Bisongrass)
- 100 ml tonic
- 150 ml unfiltered apple juice (apple cider)
- 1/4 tablespoon dried lavender
- 2 pinches of cinnamon
- 2 slices of organic lemon
- ice cubes
Grind the lavender with mortar & pestle. Add ground lavender to the vodka and allow to infuse for 10 minutes. Pour vodka trough a sieve to filter out the lavender bits.
In two glasses, add ice cubes and pour half of the lavender infused vodka, tonic water & apple juice over the ice. Squeeze one lemon slice over each drink & drop one pinch of cinnamon into each glas and stir, using a spoon. Enjoy!
