An original. Created for a great friend whose love of bright and floral I felt needed tribute. And it is that. Notes of cardamom and lavender, with a slight tinge of black currant keep this Collins variation playful and interesting.
1.5oz London Dry (Broker's)
.66oz Lemon Juice
.50oz Simple Syrup
.25oz Creme de Cassis
1 heaping tad Dried Lavender flowers
1 tad cardamom seeds
Crack the cardamom and lavender lightly with a muddler, then shake with rest of ingredients and double strain into a cocktail glass with a lemon twist garnish.
