Lavender and rosemary are two herbs that are fantastic together, especially in drinks. In this cocktail I've added an underlying, velvety tone to the two flavors by muddling a vanilla bean with lavender simple syrup and shaking that with rosemary-infused vodka and dry vermouth.

Rosemary-infused vodka is very easy to make using one of these two recipes: Rosemary-Infused Vodka (video) or Lavender-Rosemary Infused Vodka (skipping the lavender if you like).


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Chop a half of a vanilla bean in small pieces width-wise and place it in a mixing glass.

  3. Add the lavender syrup and muddle, crushing the vanilla bean.

  4. Fill the glass with ice, add vodka and vermouth.

  5. Shake vigorously.

  6. Fine strain and serve either up in a cocktail glass or on the rocks in an old-fashioned glass.

  7. Garnish with a lemon twist or wedge.
