Fly Cocktail: Lavandières


I created this cocktail for the upcoming, Ever Fly Ms Q-hosted, Côte d'Azur | LIBERTINE at Le Winch. After having a few during the process, the headiness of the lavender really took me right back to my treasured visits to the South of France...so I named it after the french workers that harvest the lavender. Enjoy!
