Provençal Martini

Bartender Katie Loeb created this cocktail for the 2008 Bluecoat Battle of the Bartenders, hosted by Philadelphia Distilling.

2 ½ oz. Bluecoat gin

1 oz. Lillet

½ oz. fresh lemon juice

½ oz. lavender simple syrup

2 dashes Fee Brothers lemon or grapefruit bitters

Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: thick lemon twist


Shake ingredients and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a fat lemon twist that has had the oils expressed over the cocktail.


Lavender Simple Syrup

1/4 cup dried lavender

1 cup sugar

1 cup water


Bruise lavender in plastic bag with a rolling pin. Add sugar to water and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add bruised lavender leaves and simmer for 5–10 minutes. Cool slightly. Buzz through the blender (hold a kitchen towel over the lid so it doesn't explode). Cool overnight and strain into a bottle. Keeps for 4 weeks refrigerated.
