So with the lockdowns and being stuck at home with my uber religious family, Iโ€™ve not touched a drop of alcohol!. Seeing people online boozinโ€™ it up quarantine style has put me on a rollercoaster of FOMO !


Since Iโ€™m totes in the mood for a nice cold glass of white wine rn, I thought it would be fun to look up online for some botanical cocktails . Or cocktail friendly herbs for a semi healthy alcohol drink. (well as healthy as you can make a boozy drink ha๐Ÿ˜‚). and here are some yummy drinks I found I wanna make :

Lavender Collins

2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce lavender simple syrup
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
2 ounces club soda
Culinary lavender and lemon wheels, for garnish
