Lavender is a pleasant herb that gives food and drinks a beautifully aromatic flavor. 

Furthermore, it looks lovely as a garnish or muddled in cocktails.

Even the kiddos will appreciate a sprig in their lemonade. (Yes, you can use it in alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.) 

It doesn’t matter if you’re throwing a party or just want something special to drink at home. These ten lavender cocktails are sure to impress!

10 Easy Lavender Cocktail Recipes for Any Occasion

1. Lavender Bee’s Knees – A Gin Cocktail

This drink’s delicate appearance belies its phenomenal amount of flavor.

It’s a unique twist on the original Bee’s Knees cocktail, which is basically a gin sour with lots of honey.

This one, too, uses honey but not as much as the original. Instead, it replaces some of the required amount with lavender.  

Doing so not only sweetens the drink but also gives it some powerful floral notes. Squeeze in a bit of lemon juice for a tart contrast, and you’re set.

2. Lavender Martini Cocktail

I might as well tell you one thing all lavender cocktails have in common: they’re all lovely.

So forgive me in advance if I overuse the terms ‘stunning,’ ‘gorgeous,’ ‘beautiful,’ etc.

Even the ones that don’t have lavender’s signature purple color are striking. Perhaps it’s the lavender garnish, or maybe it’s just blind luck.

Whatever the case, these drinks are gorgeous.

And the lavender Martini is no exception. You’ll love its crystalline purple hue almost as much as its exquisite taste.

It’s a fizzy, zingy cocktail with plenty of floral sweetness. One sip, and you’ll fall head over heels.

3. Cucumber-Lavender Gin Fizz

Do you prefer cocktails that’re more earthy and herbal? If so, you’ll appreciate this cucumber-lavender gin fizz. 

It takes the original recipe for a gin fizz and adds – you guessed it! – lavender and cucumbers.

Thanks to the egg white and club soda, it has a fizzy, frothy appearance to boot. 

Its taste is light, flowery, herbal, and not too sweet. It’s like spring flowers and summer melons rolled into one delicious drink.

If sugary sweet isn’t your thing, this cocktail’s the one for you.

4. Lavender Lemon Gin Spritz

This simple, five-minute drink is impossibly easy to pull together. Even if you’ve never mixed a drink before, you can make it. 

It’s a dry, crisp libation with enough bubbles to tickle your nose. It’s also somewhat tart, with just a hint of lavender.

Light, bright, and elegant enough for formal events, it’s just the right amount of sweet.

And since it’s so easy to make, I’m sure it’ll become your new Friday-night treat.

5. Lavender Lemon Drop Martini

This beautiful, shimmery drink has everything you love about the Lemon Drop and more.

If you’re a fan of the classic sweet and sour cocktail, you’ll appreciate this twist on the recipe.

It tastes remarkably similar to the original drink. The only real difference is the addition of lavender simple syrup. 

As in most of these drinks, the syrup adds a light, floral taste that pairs wonderfully with its natural tartness.

Of course, it also tones the sour down some.

If you don’t already have the syrup ready, it takes about 25 minutes to make.

However, I suggest you make a big batch of the syrup and store it in the fridge. You’ll need it to make all of these terrific drinks.

6. Lightning Lavender Margarita

With or without the purple sugar, this margarita is enchanting. And with only four ingredients, it’s simple to make, too. 

It’s a potent cocktail with white whiskey and tequila.

The lavender syrup and lime juice add tartness and floral notes. However, they aren’t enough to mask the alcohol entirely.

You’ll appreciate it if you enjoy strong drinks with a bitter, boozy kick.

Just don’t let its darling appearance fool you. It’s a hardcore cocktail that’ll get you where you want to be.

7. Lavender Old Fashioned Cocktail

This three-ingredient drink puts a unique spin on the classic Old Fashioned. You’ll need bourbon, lavender simple syrup, and lemon berry tincture.

The result is a beautiful drink with a unique flavor that’s woodsy, smoky, light, herbal, and even a little apple-y.

Every sip brings something new for you to discover. 

And don’t worry about the lemon berry tincture – you can easily find it online. Or if you have a local hemp, vape, or CBD shop, they usually carry it there, as well. 

It’s not an ingredient I commonly keep at home. Luckily, it didn’t take long to find once I started looking for it. 

8. Lavender Gin Sour Cocktail

This lovely lavender cocktail has an elegant color to match its flowery taste.

Although, the lavender isn’t incredibly strong in this drink. Instead, it’s more sour and citrusy than anything.

It still tastes phenomenal, though, and you’ll love the frothy top. I adore the unique mouthfeel and magical appearance. 

You should be able to whip it up in 10 minutes tops. This drink is excellent if you need something crisp and refreshing for summer.

9. Earl Grey Tea Cocktail

I love Earl Grey tea. It’s one of those beverages I can enjoy all year long, no matter the weather.

I like it hot; I like it cold; I even enjoy it at room temperature (when I forget it’s there as I work).

What I didn’t realize, though, was how much I’d like it boozy. Luckily, this gin-infused recipe is Earl Grey tea at its finest.

Of course, it also has some honey, lavender, and lemon juice. So it’s a multifaceted cocktail with layers of pleasing flavors.

If you enjoy some caffeine with your booze, this cocktail is the drink for you.

10. Lavender Mojito

Can you guess the only difference between the lavender mojito and a regular one?

If you said lavender simple syrup – ding ding! You’re absolutely correct.

This drink still has the biting freshness of a mojito. However, underlying notes of sweetness and lavender add a lot to the flavor.

Sip on this tasty drink poolside, or enjoy it at your favorite bar. Honestly, it’s the perfect drink for any occasion.
