  1. Oh, I can not wait to try this out… This sounds amazing! Have a great weekend, Si!

  2. While I am always game for an apero, I don’t like lavender in food. I’ve had it in chocolates and cookies and it makes me think of soap. Good for you if you like it–it’s a big deal in the south of France–but I’m going to go pour me a glass of wine (boring, but hey, I live in the middle of vineyards) because it’s almost 6 p.m. here and it’s Friday night!

    1. Hmm, haven’t tried this twist, @Halee, but i will and let you know if it works! Xo-

  3. This looks phenomenal. Now I know what to do with the remainder of the *tiny* lavender “crop” we harvested from our single lavender plant last year and dried, originally for lavender scones. Gin is my springtime favorite, and you’ve just created what sounds like the perfect recipe.
