The lavender farm is SO dreamy! Here’s a quick pic Stefanie took as we were setting up!
I’ll have a post with all the pretty little details SOON, including the DIY projects and recipes,
like my Lavender & Blackberry Drop! Oh My!
AND here’s a peek at those chalk painted mason jars I
mentioned on KOMO Newsradio with Larry Rice. You can find the Annie Sloan chalk paint at

But for now, here’s a fragrant and delicious taste of summer with my
handmade Lavender & Violette Martini Drop!
The Tarragon simple syrup:
Use one part water to one part granulated sugar and a handful of fresh tarragon.
Simmer the ingredients on the stove top, on medium low until the sugar dissolves and the tarragon has
serveral minutes to flavor the syrup. Strain and chill in the fridge.
The lavender infused vodka:
Add a nice handful of culinary lavender to a bottle of
vodka and let it hang out overnight. Strain before using.
Next you’ll need: Parfait Amour, Creme de Violette & fresh lemon juice.
Here’s the Lavender & Violette Martini Drop cocktail recipe:
Makes 2 Cocktails
3 shots lavender vodka
½ shot Parfait Amour
½ shot Crème de Violette
¼ shot fresh lemon juice
¼ shot tarragon simple syrup
Add ice, shake and pour into a glass rimmed in lemon juice and super fine sugar
