Citrus Lavender Gin Fizz

If you’re looking for a fun, vibrant, and refreshing cocktail, this Citrus Lavender Gin Fizz recipe has you covered! I used Empress 1908 Gin which is hand-crafted from Victoria Distillers in British Columbia, Canada. It’s inspired by the renowned tea and cocktail programs of the iconic Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria. It infuses eight botanicals including butterfly pea blossoms, which gives it subtle earthy notes and an all-natural indigo hue. It’s the PERFECT base for any amazing cocktail! Cheers

1. To make the lavender simple syrup, add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, and 3 tbsp. dried lavender flowers to a saucepan over medium heat.
