I really like Mafly gin and I am trying each of their flavors this summer!

(Click here for my recipe with the blood orange gin.)

2 ounces Malfy Limon Gin

Fresh mint

Juice from 1/2 lemon

2 pumps lavender syrup

Sparkling water or tonic

In a cocktail shaker, add the gin, lemon juice, ice cubes and a sprig of mint. Shake the mixture vigorously. Strain the mixture into a glass add the lavender syrup and stir. Add fresh ice cubes to the glass and top with sparkling water. Garnish with fresh mint and lemon slice.

Virgin version - Lavender Lemonade

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

1 cup fresh lemon juice

Lavender syrup

5 cups still or sparkling water

Mint for garnish

In a small saucepan make the simple syrup with adding equal parts water and sugar. Bring to a boil until the sugar has dissolve. Set aside and let cool. Juice enough lemons to make 1 cup, about 5 1/2 lemons.

In a large pitcher, combine the cooled simple syrup and lemon juice, stir to combine. Top with either still or sparkling water. Add lavender syrup to your taste. ( About 1 - 2 pumps per cup of water.) You may want to add a drop or two of purple food coloring for the kids! Garnish with a lemon slice and fresh mint.
