The Long Lavender Look

This cocktail continues my series of Tequila cocktails named after the Travis McGee novels of American author John D. MacDonald. I have always like the Travis McGee novels, and the titles of these novels just seem to me to be particularly well suited to be also the names of great cocktails.

The Long Lavender Look

2 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Blueberry Liqueur
1/2 oz Lavender Syrup (see recipe below)
ice
Fresh Blueberries

In a metal shaker add the first four ingredients with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker frosts
Strain into a tall cocktail glass
Garnish with fresh blueberries

Lavender Syrup
 
100 ml water
15 ml Fresh (or dried) Lavender Flowers
175 ml sugar

Place all of the ingredients on the stove in a stainless steel pan
Slowly heat the mixture until the Sugar dissolves
Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes
Remove the pan from the stove and allow everything to cool
Strain the mixture into a small glass bottle
(The Syrup will keep for about four days)
