Cocktails
Lavender: The Color of Summer
Lavender blooms the most in the late spring to summer months. It is unique and can be used in almost anything, especially cocktails. Since it is fairly accessible, just about anyone can create something with it. Lavender is an extremely pretty plant, which is always great for presentation. Plus, as it is known for its calming and soothing properties, who wouldn’t want to add that to their end-of-day cocktail?
