Like lavender? Like limoncello? Try Loft Lavender Cello, one of the organic liqueurs by Loft. You won’t be disappointed.
Simply put: It smells good. It tastes good.
It has the soft, sweet taste of limoncello with the light floral flavor and scent of lavender. Sweetened with agave nectar, it has a full sweetness that isn’t too sticky tasting and rolls over the tongue pleasantly.
Mixing with lime is a natural for recipes, and it would be a good compliment to the saltiness of a silver tequila. Experiment and let us know what you come up with!
I see this as more of a cocktail ingredient and less of a sipping liqueur. So if you like to be inspired by unique flavors, this is a good start.
Here’s a great recipe from the folks at Loft. Yum! Photo and recipe courtesy of Loft Liqueurs
- 1 ½ oz Loft Lavender Cello
- 1 ½ oz gin
- ¾ oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
- 1 oz tonic
- 1 oz soda
- ½ oz pomegranate juice
Pour liqueur, gin, lime juice and pomegranate juice over ice. Top off with tonic and soda. You could use all soda or all tonic. However, tonic is different than soda because it contains quinine. You can read more about that here.
