Easter Lavender Gin Cosmo

2 oz. of botanical gin (we prefer Bockmans)
1 oz. of orange liquor (such as Cointreau)
2 oz of cranberry juice
1/2 oz. of lavender syrup
juice of 1/2 a lime
crushed ice
fresh lavender, sugar (for the rum), mint and orange zest, optional (for garnish)


In a shaker, combine the lavender syrup, gin, cranberry juice, orange liquor and ice. Shake about 30 seconds to combine. Try and adjust to your liking by adding more of gin, orange liquor, or syrup. Sugar your rim, then pour. Garnish with fresh lavender mint and orange zest if desired and serve right away.
