Lavender Infused Gin
Do you grow lavender? I love it, it’s probably one of the most versatile herbs that I grow. First of all, it’s gorgeous. I love the soft lavender blossoms as they sway in the breeze. They release their gentle fragrance. I would grow it for looks alone. But it turns out, I love using the lavender for cooking – Lavender Almond Biscotti anyone? And now, I love using it for alcohol! Alas, if you don’t grow your own lavender, you can easily get some – Organic Culinary Lavender.
I absolutely love infusing alcohols. Most of the work is done by time and not by me, and that, my friends, is my kind of task.
The beauty of lavender infused gin is that very little work is done by anyone – me or father time! After searching the web, I found that recipes for infused gin ran the gamut from infusing in 4-5 hours to several days. I took it somewhere in the middle and settled on one day. One day! One day is all that is between you and this lovely aromatic gin.
I’ll update this post later with a yummy recipe to use your newly infused lavender gin!
