Servings 2


  • 8 oz lemonade
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz limoncello
  • 1.5 oz lavender simple syrup**
  • 3 dashes lavender, orange or hummingbird bitters
  • Optional ½ oz fresh lemon juice if you prefer very tart cocktails
  • Optional ½ oz bourbon to top the slush as you serve it
  • Garnish: lavender sprig and lemon rose


  • Add lemonade, bourbon, limoncello, lavender syrup, bitters, and the optional lemon juice to a freezer-safe, sealable container. Lay flat in the freezer for about 4 hours. To serve, put on the counter for 50 to 10 minutes. Stir/fluff with a fork and scoop into chilled glasses to serve. Use a coupe if you want to be fancy about it and serve with a small dessert spoon.


** Lavender Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T dried culinary lavender
Add dried lavender to 1 cup of boiling water and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain and add sugar. Let dissolve completely and transfer to a clean glass jar. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
Alternatives to Lavender Simple:
Not everyone loves the floral taste of lavender. If you prefer, you can use any simple syrup that’s infused.
Love blackberry? Add blackberry syrup. Mint, basil, and rosemary are all great herb alternatives to florals.
Want to be a little extra? Create a peach-basil-infused syrup to add to the lemonade and garnish with a fresh peach slice and a sprig of basil. You will wow everyone with that delicious bourbon cocktail.
