Lavender Gin Fizz by Domingo-Martin Barreres, Market
1¼ ounces Bombay Sapphire gin, ¾ ounce house made lavender syrup, ¾ ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice, soda water, thin lemon wheel
This drink gets built in highball glass; put gin and lavender syrup into a highball glass then fill halfway with ice, place the lemon wheel midway on inside wall of glass for garnish and effect then fill the glass with ice. Fill most of the way with club soda then top off with the lemon juice, mix thoroughly before drinking to combine flavors.
