It's Friday - woo hoo! Fancy a drink? How about something classic?

Summer Cordial recipe Via
In a collins glass combine:
  • 1 oz of Tonic
  • 1 oz of lavender sage honey syrup
  • A squeeze of fresh meyer lemon juice
  • 2 oz of your favorite Gin

Add ice, top with soda water, stir, add a slice or two of meyer lemon and a sprig of fresh sage. Sip slowly. 
For the lavender sage honey syrup:
  • 1 cup of local honey
  • 1 cup of water 
  • 2 tablespoons dried lavender buds
  • 4 sage sprigs

In a small saucepan bring the honey and water to a boil for a moment. Reduce the heat and add dried lavender buds. Cook at a low simmer until the water has reduced by a third. Remove from the heat, add the sage and let it sit for a couple hours. Strain into a glass jar for keeping.
