Drink Like A Woman: Lavender Amore

Holiday: Valentine’s Day, but any holiday where you share the love

Love. It’s all you need. Or, just make a great drink.

Try this lavender-laced version of a Paloma. It will make you feel loved.

Recipe by Jaime Salas, Milagro Tequila brand ambassador

2 oz. Milagro Silver tequila
1 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
½ oz. simple syrup
½ oz. fresh lime juice

3 oz. DRY Lavender soda or club soda
glass: Collins
garnish: grapefruit peel, lavender kosher salt, sprig of fresh lavender

Shake all ingredients, except for soda, with ice, for 60 seconds. Strain into glass filled with ice, top with soda, and garnish with a grapefruit peel and a sprinkle of lavender kosher salt and/or a sprig of fresh lavender.

Note: If you can’t find DRY Lavender soda, you can make a simple syrup infused with dry lavender and vanilla. Try this recipe from Shalommama or this one from Martha Stewart.
