For the cocktail:

juice of 1 lemon

1/4 cup lavender crystals

1 teaspoon rose syrup

processing until fully combined, about 1 minute. This can be prepared in advance and

stored, in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 2 weeks.

2. Prepare the drink by pouring the lemon juice onto a small plate and spreading the lavender

crystals on a second small plate. Dip the rim of a 12-ounce glass into the lemon juice, then

dip it into the lavender crystals to lightly coat. Repeat with a second 12-ounce glass.

3. Pour 1 teaspoon of the rose syrup and 1 ounce each of juice, vodka and simple syrup

into each prepared glass. Add ice and enough soda water to fill each glass. Garnish with

lavender sprigs and serve.
