  • 2 oz Sagamore Spirit Rye
  • ½ oz lavender simple syrup
  • ¾ oz crème de cacao
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz aquafaba or egg white optional
  • 3 dashes chocolate bitters
  • Garnish: lemon peel and lavender sprig


  • In a shaker, combine whiskey, syrup, liqueur, bitters and egg white/aquafaba if using. Shake for 30 seconds. Add ice and shake for 30 to 60 more seconds – until the shaker is frosted over and so cold it hurts. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with lemon peel and lavender sprig.


** Lavender simple: Brew 2 tablespoons of lavender with 1 cup of water. Steep and let cool. Strain, add 1 cup of sugar and stir until combined. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Great in homemade lemonade, any whiskey sour, added to a champagne cocktail/mimosa, mixed in a refreshing mule or in added to a vodka tonic.
