When I recreated former Rye House Mixologist Lynnette Marrero’s Lavender Sage Sling recipe at home it brought me right back to a childhood trip to Provence. As we drove around near the historic hillside town of Les-Baux, we passed by lavender fields, and drove through the hills, with the window rolled down. The scent of rosemary and lavender wafted through the window and intermingled. Ever since then, I’ve always felt like lavender doesn’t deserve the floral, soapy rap it so often gets. Sure, lavender honey smells a little floral. But when you pass actual lavender, that aroma blends with a slightly savory one, sort of like sage and rosemary blended into one. Marrero’s lavender recipe takes full advantage of this, really showcasing the lavender with sage. What summer ingredients have you tasted recently that really sing?
