During a recent trip to Carousel Lavender Farm in Bucks County, PA we found ourselves intoxicated by the vision and fragrance of sublime purple.  This experience inspired us to conjure this wistful martini.

This looks so beautiful. I actually just bought some elderflower liqueur for some sangria and this looks like a wonderful way to use some of it. Thanks for sharing! I look forward to trying this.

This is so gorgeous! I don’t even drink alcohol but I saw this picture on Foodgawker and had to come over and tell you how beautiful it is.

This is absolutely/positively the most gorgeous cocktail I have ever seen in my entire (very long) life. Getting all the ingredients might require taking out a second mortgage, but hey, you only live once! Thanks for the inspiration.

I want to drink this, and then to roll around in a field of lavender! Love your recipes and the photos are eye candy extraordinaire.

Just made this for the first time. $188 for all the ingrediants. I substituted Bar Keep lavender bitters for Scrappy’s and Absolute for Belvedere but everything else is the same. It makes an interesting cocktail for sure. Go easy on the bitters or it can kind of taste like soap. Overall it’s been a hit but not sure it’s worth how expensive the ingrediants are.
