TBB Friday Night Cocktail Pick: Blue Lavender Collins

Straight from the pages of the Spring LCBO Food and Drink comes this week’s Friday Night pick!!!

As soon as I turned the page to this I knew I would make it!  I travelled the city looking for the main ingredient and finally found Michael’s Dolce Blueberry Lavendar Jam at the Glebe Metro … late on a Sunday afternoon … in the pouring rain!  A woman on a mission …

Anywaaaay, back to the deliciousness of this cocktail!

Mix the following in a cocktail shaker:

  • 1 1/2 oz of Vodka
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 oz Blueberry Lavender Jam

Give it a good shake and strain it over a glass of ice.  Top up with club soda or tonic water.

  • Simple syrup is made by mixing 1/2 cup sugar with 1 cup of boiling water.  Stir until the sugar dissolves.  Refrigerate for up to one month (trust me it won’t last that long).

Now take that delicious drink, head outside, have a seat in your favourite spot and enjoy!
