This light and refreshing drink is perfect for weddings, garden parties … or any time you want to toast something beautiful. My latest creation is a champagne cocktail made with limoncello, gin, a hint of lavender and, of course, champagne.

It’s a subtle cocktail that will please lots of different tastes.

If you want a more pronounced lavender flavor and aroma in the drink, after you muddle the flowers with the lemon and limoncello, leave it steeping for 5-10 minutes so that the oil has a chance to bond with the other liquids. Or, alternately, simply put extra sprigs of lavender in as a garnish.


  • 2 sprigs of lavender flowers
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz limoncello
  • 1/2 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • Champagne


Using your fingers, strip the lavender flowers from the stem and combine with the limoncello and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Thoroughly muddle the lavender so that the flowers release their oils into the lemon liquids. Add the gin and shake with ice. Strain into a champagne glass and top with champagne. Garnish with a lavender flower, if desired.

    Just FYI, non-culinary lavender has compounds in it that can cause stomach cramps and other forms of severe gastric discomfort. Never use non-culinary lavender in food, but be especially cautious about using lavender intended as potpourri that may have been treated with chemicals.
