  2. Add half of the sugar to the processor and blend well for 15-20 seconds.
  3. Remove from processor and mix in remaining sugar until lavender is well dispersed.
  4. Store sugar for future use in a sealed container or jar.

Assembly

Chill in shaker filled with ice, then pour into a martini glass, rimmed in lavender sugar. Garnish with lemon twist.
