- To make Lavender Syrup: place the dried lavender and sugar in a small saucepan. Crush the lavender flowers into the sugar with the back of a spoon. Add water and place on stove. Bring to a simmer so the sugar completely dissolves, about 2 minutes. Let the syrup completely cool before using. Can be made a day or two ahead of time and placed in the refrigerator.
- To make the cocktail: Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well.
- Rim the glasses with sugar and frost them in the freezer first. Serve in two martini glasses with a sprig of lavender for garnish.
