3 ½ oz. Modern Gin
1 oz. Honey Syrup
1 oz. Lemon Juice
3 dashes Floral bitters
4 peach slices
Lavender sprig for garnish
Not a fan of Gin? No worries, the Lavender Peach Smash has got you covered. Its versatility shines through when paired with Tequila or Bourbon, delivering a delightful taste that you'll love.
Caught without floral bitters? Fear not. Muddle half a sprig of lavender with peaches for a taste of blooming summer. If floral notes aren't to your liking, let the spicy, fruity undertones of pink peppercorn bitters sweep your palate off its feet.
No peaches? No problem. Elevate the lavender bitters by pairing them with the tart sweetness of blackberries, the juicy burst of strawberries, the refreshing zest of oranges, or the subtle tang of blueberries. Each fruit promises to make your cocktail an unforgettable experience.
