Lemon Lavender Cosmopolitan


A fun and aromatic twist on a classic cocktail! This easy to make yet hard to forget Lemon Lavender Cosmopolitan is a cocktail that deserves to be in your regular drink rotation.


A Cosmo with a Twist

The cosmopolitan is a classic cocktail that is traditionally made with vodka, cranberry juice, lime, and Cointreau.  For this updated version, we have switched out the lime for lemon and added aromatic lavender. Additionally, we swapped out regular cranberry juice for a white cranberry which allows the lavender to shine.

Above all, the lavender brings this drink to another level.  Its floral aroma works perfectly with the tart citrus and it’s sure to transport you to a place of ultimate relaxation. Although the lavender provides a mild flavor, it tastes incredible in this sophisticated adult drink.

Best yet, you will only need 4 ingredients to make this spectacular Lemon Lavender Cosmopolitan…

  • Lemon
