Happy Hour

Happy (Birthday) Hour

I created this drink last Thursday, in honor of my aunt’s birthday on 4/11. When I lived in Wisconsin with her and my uncle, we worked hard all day and played hard after, and we loved creating drinks and naming them (like my uncle Tim’s vodka and cran-raspberry mix, which Wendy and I named the ‘Mr. Barbie’). So to celebrate my aunt, here is a springy drink recipe:

The Wendy

  • 2 drops of lavender essential oil (be sure to use food-grade)
  • juice of half a Meyer lemon
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1.5+ oz Tanqueray Rangpur gin
  • club, seltzer, or sparkling water

Shake lavender, lemon juice, simple syrup, and gin with ice. Strain into glass and top with seltzer. Enjoy!
