lavender martini

so, we finally tried the lavender gin that i made - it’s impressive stuff. one week for the dried lavender flowers to infuse is ample as the resulting gin has a very strong lavender flavour, which means that it needs to be “diluted” with normal gin in this drink. 

to make a lavender martini, shake with ice, 1 shot lavender gin, 1 shot gin, ½ shot of dry vermouth, ½ shot of sugar syrup and 2 dashes of orange bitters. strain into a chilled martini glass and serve garnished with a twist of orange.
