Our new photographer named this drink. He said “This tastes like a spring wedding,” when he tasted it, and I figured that was as good a name as any.
Here’s how we made it —
1.5 oz. Gin
0.25 oz. Creme de Violette
0.25 oz. Chambord
0.25 oz. Creme de Cacao
0.5 oz. Lemon Juice
1.5 oz. Egg white (equals 1 egg white, if you use a real egg)
Dry shake all of those ingredients
Add some ice, and shake it again
Strain it off into a coupe glass
Garnish with some lavender pods
Notes: This drink is actually spectacular. I picked it as one of my pre-existing drinks to be featured on the new menu I am collaborating on with a local restaurant. All of the flavors are really well balanced, and if I changed anything, I would maybe add a dash or 2 of chocolate bitters, just to kind of bring out the chocolate notes a little more. Otherwise, the drink itself was one of our favorites from the shoot.
Once the new menu is released at Grateful Head, you can come down and try one!
