After making a batch of lavender infused vodka, I put this refreshing little patio drink together. As for the name......lavender & vodka.......the first thing that popped into my head was Andy Kaufman's "Taxi" character Latka! So Sappy!
1 1/2 oz lavender infused vodka
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon luice
3-4 fresh cherries (pitted)
Add cherries, lavender vodka, lemon & lime juice to a highball glass. Muddle cherries heavily. Add ice as desired, and fill to top of glass with Sprite Zero, or lemon/lime soda of your choosing.
Lavender infused vodka: I filled a medium sized canning jar with vodka, and stripped the flowers off 8-10 lavender stems. Refrigerate for 10 days shaking jar daily. Use a fine wire mesh strainer to remove the lavender from the vodka, and pour it into a clean jar. I prefer a good potato vodka!
