Cool Cocktails

Bride's Bouquet

Warm 2 oz. vodka over low heat. Add a few sprigs of lavender and stir. Chill mixture; strain into a cocktail shaker. Add 4 oz. vodka, 1 oz. Triple Sec, 1 oz. simple syrup, a few splashes of fresh lemon juice, and ice cubes. Shake and strain into a tumbler over a combination of plain and lavender-flavored ice cubes. (For lavender ice cubes, place lavender in ice trays, fill with water, and freeze.)
