The Lavender Drop

aka "The Lemon Eye Pillow," or "The Purple Scurvy-Buster."

1 serving
1 1/2 oz. lavender infused vodka*
1 1/2 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp. (or more) sugar or agave nectar

Add ingredients to shaker with ice. Shake well until ice almost dissolved. Rim martini glass with sugar. Shake. Serve. 

Wash several sprigs of lavender. Place in jar and cover with high-grade vodka. Let stand for 4-7 days. Sample flavor to determine strength of infusion. Remove lavender, filter vodka through a coffee filter into a decorative bottle. Enjoy.
