Has it really been a year and a half since I updated this page? Sadly, I believe the answer is yes. At any rate, we had a party this past weekend and it was a good time with fun cocktails.

French 75

A classic bubbly cocktail.

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and fill with champagne. Alternately, you may build it in an ice-filled collins glass.

Lavender Gimlet

We had one of these at Five Points in Manhattan and were determined to try one for ourselves. It's ridiculously tasty and very refreshing.

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

To make the infused simple syrup, mix a cup of water and a cup of sugar over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh or dried lavender and bring the entire mixture to a boil. Boil for a minute, then take it off the heat, and store it in the fridge. Strain the lavender before making drinks. An ounce each of this syrup and lime juice added to club soda make a fantastic summertime soda.

Sloe Gin Fizz

We made this with Plymouth Sloe Gin, a proper sloe gin made with actual sloeberries.

Mix over ice in a glass. Add a splash of club soda and serve.
