~ This is Day 157 ~
I was bored last Saturday night so I was playing around with new flavors at my bar and surprisingly, I developed a new cocktail! I love it so much!! It’s my new favorite thing to make and drink at home!
This is my second Rontini cocktail to feature lavender. For the past year or so, I’ve been really into herbaceous flavors, again, in cocktails. Six years ago, I was testing out Herbs de Provence in drinks but I think that Herbs de Provence is too overpowering because of its composite of many different herbs. So I have settled on lavender by its lonesome.
