This Lavender Collins cocktail is a twist on the classic and pairs lavender and bright lemon juice. This summery cocktail uses a great homemade lavender infused simple syrup.

The Lavender Collins is a delightful and refreshing summer cocktail that puts a spin on the classic Tom Collins. Using lavender simple syrup adds a dash of floral to this sparkling gin drink and is ideal for spring and summer events.

We can imagine summer afternoons on the deck or to be used as a great brunch cocktail alfresco.

 

Tom Collins Cocktail

The difference between this cocktail and the original Tom Collins is the use of lavender simple syrup. It is a very easy sweetener to make at home and can be used in a number of other cocktails. In this Lavender Collins, the floral notes blend really well with the botanicals found in the gin.

A classic Tom Collins is pretty much a sparkling lemonade made with gin and simple syrup. We take this popular gin cocktail to a whole other level by adding a lavender infused simple syrup in place of regular simple syrup.

 

We used vodka in this one, but feel free to use a floral gin in this as well, for some added botanicals and flavor. Either works, so use what you like!

Lavender Simple Syrup

The lavender simple syrup is super easy to make. Although we do suggest you make this the day before you are planning on making this Lavender Collins. Simple syrup is easy to make, but it does require a little steeping and cooling time, which makes the day before a better choice.

 

We have also discovered this lavender simple syrup is tasty in other drinks as well, such as our Lavender Old Fashioned, Blackberry Lavender Gin Sour and our Lavender Bee’s Knees!

Club Soda vs. Sparkling Water

This ingredient we will leave up to your choice of what you would like to use. Club Soda won’t add flavor, just makes this drink bubbly and light. If you would like to use a flavored sparkling water, we encourage it! Lemon or citrus will add a lot of bright flavor, and there are so many great sparkling waters that have great flavors, so just experiment.

But, if you want the lavender flavor to shine through, as we like, we just use club soda, as it keeps it simple, and than we get the great lavender floral flavors.

 

Cheers!
