A drink with so few ingredients could be hard to turn into something nonalcoholic. Seedlip Spice brings the complexity of a gin’s botanicals to the cocktail without the booze, while the lavender honey syrup is a unique addition to this Prohibition-era drink. Makes 1 cocktail.

How to Make It

1

Make syrup: In a small pan, bring honey and water to a low boil, then add the lavender. Remove from heat. Let steep for 30 minutes, then strain.

 

2

Make shrub: Add all ingredients together and shake, then strain into a coupe or martini glass.

*Seedlip is the world’s first nonalcoholic spirit. Produced in London, it tastes similar to gin and is available stateside at select Whole Foods Markets and boutique liquor shops.
