TASTE.57 | LAVENDER REALLY IS THE BEE'S KNEES

I 'honestly' feel like I've stuck gold.  Three of my favorite ingredients combined in one cocktail? Get out! Seriously, I would move mountains to smell or taste lavender, try out Bee Keeping if I wasn't so damn afraid of them, and three, let's just face it. Gin. Who doesn't love gin?  Tell me now because it would be hard to be friends.

I now imagine this will be my fancy cocktail of choice throughout the next four months.  Todd at Honestly Yum killed it on this one. Bravo!
