A Cocktail Named Daisy
Laid Back With Lavender
Muddle and pour: the two simple actions involved in building a Daisy, a style of cocktail dating back to the mid-19th century that employs a base spirit, fresh lemon juice, sweetener and a splash of soda water.
Mixologist Adrienne Nicole’s artful rendition, the Lavender Daisy, is an utterly refreshing, botanical take on a spritzy sour with a sweet snappy tartness and bold floral character. Fresh muddled blueberry and lavender blossoms reach new complexity, footed by notes of the lemon zest, angelica and almond present in Bombay Sapphire Gin. Honey syrup and fresh lemon juice form a sweet-sour acidity that cuts the perfume of the lavender, seducing the sipper with its honeyed tendrils. The magenta hue of the Lavender Daisy recalls a pink sunset prism and beckons a seat with an ocean view.
