Tea Cocktail: Lavender Sage Collins

This August midday heat is positively smothering, and that calls for something cold and invigorating to get us through the afternoon. We decided to whip up a cocktail that tastes light and refreshing, like sitting in your favorite room with every window open, all soft sunlight and a light breeze. Remember those days?

Enter one of our old floral cocktails, the Lavender Sage Collins. To make this delicate cocktail, all you need is the following:

3oz Lavender Citrus Sage simple syrup*

1-2oz Gin

Squeeze of lemon juice

Sparkling mineral water (or club soda)

Start by making your Lavender Citrus Sage simple syrup. Boil water and remove from heat. Steep 2 tbsp Lavender Citrus Sage loose leaf tea in 8oz water for 5 minutes. When finished steeping, strain tea into glass or bowl.

Add 1.5 tbsp of a light raw honey and stir until dissolved.

In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, the simple syrup, gin and lemon juice. Shake and strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Top with sparkling mineral water (or club soda), stir gently to mix, and garnish with fresh sage.
