An herbal twist on the classic Old Fashioned, this Lavender Cocktail is full of flavor!
This herbaceous lavender cocktail is sure to please! We love using lavender in cocktails, and this one is no different. With a woody, almost apple like flavor, the lavender simple syrup plays really well with the bourbon in this twist on a classic!

When we knew we wanted to do a lavender version of an Old Fashioned, we tried it with some lavender bitters that we had. While we liked the flavor, it just didn’t have the lavender oomph we wanted. We then proceeded to make some lavender simple syrup, which seemed to give the flavor we wanted, but we wanted to make sure we had the lavender stand out.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Lavender Old Fashioned?
- Lavender Simple Syrup
- Lemon Berry Tincture
Because we wanted the flavor to stand out, we couldn’t find any bitters that didn’t mute it. We then turned to our tinctures. If you want to know about tinctures, make sure to check out our Instagram video!
Lavender Old Fashioned
We made a Lemon Berry Tincture, out of blueberries and lemon zest, which seemed to work perfectly in this lavender cocktail. The lemon berry flavors were light and didn’t overwhelm the lavender syrup. Actually the lemon berry flavor highlighted the lavender and they seemed to play well together.
