Luvvs, in case you haven't noticed, this week and month are dedicated to CELEBRATING! Hello Luvvy turns two this week which means we have officially been bringing you original content we luvv for two years! It's such a pleasure to get to work with the ever beautiful Katie, the ever stylish Darcy, and all of the other beloved contributors/guest. It's equally wonderful to get to bring you recipes that are made for the busy bee women I know us all to be. I'm so thankful to get to share my love of cooking, baking, and food photos with you. Thanks for keeping me around, luvvs :D.For this week, I knew my recipe had to be something that would make you want to clink your glasses together and celebrate with us, so I made a special luvvy cocktail with special luvvy stirrers (a DIY we'll be bringing you tomorrow!). This cocktail is made with lavender infused vodka, so it is oh so light and beautiful. I then took the lavender vodka and mixed it into an Arnold Palmer, one of my go-to warm weather drinks. The result was this amazing cocktail that will definitely having you raising your glass asking for more. Don't worry, it's light in calories, so you absolutely need another.
LAVENDER INFUSED VODKA + ARNOLD PALMER
Vodka Lavender flowers
Crystal Light packets
LAVENDER INFUSED VODKA
For this, start off with as little or as much vodka you want to infuse. I did 2 cups of vodka for every 2 tablespoons of lavender. If you want more vodka, just use a tablespoon of lavender per cup. You will need a container that seals tightly so that the infusion process can happen.
To infuse, simply pour the vodka and lavender in a container together. Let these sit together for a minimum of 24 hours. You can infuse for longer if you want the lavender to be more prominent. Once time is up, you're ready to serve it in your cocktails!
LAVENDER ARNOLD PALMER
Can I just say, making cocktails with Crystal Light packets is my JAM. It's hardly any calories and tastes so good. If you're not doing this already, let me officially convert you with this recipe please.
You will need to make a pitcher of black tea, no sugar. Then make a pitcher of crystal light using the low calorie packets you put in water.
Make a drink that is half lemonade and half tea in a glass over water but leave room in the cup to add in an ounce of lavender vodka.
Stir!!!! With our adorable stirrers and now serve.
I'm sure they're are plenty of other delicious cocktails I will bring you later with this lavender infusion. I hope you make this cocktail and remember to raise a glass for us. We're always raising our glasses for you guys! It is such an honor to get to write for you and share with you. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.
Happy Eats My Sweets,
