Sexy and smooth, this tequila cocktail has a hint of lavender and a dash of sweet honey syrup. It's spring in a cup, but since the floral flavors come from bitters, you can sip it all year round.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Honey syrup*
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 dash Scrappy's lavender bitters
  • Garnish: Lavender sprig

Steps

  1. Add all ingredients into a shaker and dry-shake (without ice).

  2. Add ice and shake again to emulsify thoroughly.

  3. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

  4. Garnish with a lavender sprig.

  5. *Honey syrup: Add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. (You can experiment and decide how much of a honey flavor you want in your syrup. The more honey you use, the thicker the syrup and stronger in flavor it will be.) Stir until blended. Strain into a jar and seal tightly with a lid. Will keep for 1 month in the refrigerator.
