Lavender Fields Forever

Herbal, bright, and simple. Those are three apt adjectives for this week’s cocktail, which comes from Lana Restaurant & Bar, a long-standing neighborhood bistro in Charleston, SC. They have developed a seasonal cocktail menu, and this lemon and lavender concoction is just the ticket for an elegant, lighter twist on the popular Lemon Drop martini.

Cheers.

Lavender and Lemon Martini
from Chef John Ondo of Lana Restaurant & Bar, Charleston, SC
