Lavender Passion Fruit Martini Cocktail Recipe

Passion Lavender

I love an aromatic drink. There’s nothing like crafting a beverage that is a pleasure to all of the senses – there’s such an art to it, and I love experimenting to come up with new creations. Whenever I try a new drink, I not only base it as one of my favorites on how it tastes, but also on how it smells and looks. And as a person who loves florals whether it be getting flowers to put in my house, lighting floral candles, or even in some of the fabric softeners and body lotion that we use around the house, I have been loving creating floral cocktails such as my recent Kiss of Rose bourbon cocktail and my Rose Margarita that was a major hit during the summer. To try a different spirit and create another cocktail, I spun up this calming lavender passion fruit martini.

Don’t you love when you go out to grab drinks with your girlfriends and you get to order fancy cocktails? They are always so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, they’re as enjoyable to look at as they are to drink! I wanted to channel that fun, stylish vibe when creating this cocktail recipe. It’s one thing to make a drink that tastes great – it’s another to make a drink that looks great, too. Florals make my day instantly brighter, and I love the light, peaceful scent of this cocktail. It’s the perfect mixture of spring and summer with the floral elegance and vibrant passion fruit, and I find myself making this cocktail again and again. It is certainly going to become one of my go-to beverages when hosting, and I am so excited to share it with all of my friends and family when they come over next.

Gin Cocktail With Lavendar

LAVENDER PASSION FRUIT MARTINI

The Lavender Passion Martini is a gin-based martini that mixes the taste and fragrance of lavender with the sweetness of passion fruit and the slight zing of lemon juice. The food-grade lavender and ‘Don’t Forget Me’ flowers that are used to garnish the cocktail helps to make the fragrance of the drink present right when it is presented in front of you, and if you’re feeling a little adventurous, you can even put some of the lavender pieces in the ice cubes to make the drink stand out a little more than it already does. After all, who doesn’t love a floral ice cube? I love what a beautiful drink this is, and the lavender and lemon are the perfect pairing to garnish the glass – the colors complement each other so well!

This is a shaken drink that you need to make sure to shake vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker to blend together the ingredients nicely. When I first was putting this cocktail together, I tried it with a dry-shake and egg whites, and though the cocktail didn’t turn out horrible, the lavender faded out and become more of a side piece rather than a centerpiece. You want to let the amazing lavender and passion fruit flavor really shine through! This passionfruit martini cocktail is too much fun not to make perfectly – though you would never guess from how beautiful it is how simple and easy it is to make!

If you decide to try out this cocktail, let me know your thoughts on how yours turned out, and if you’re feeling great about it, DM me the final product on my Instagram as I love to share how you all re-created these cocktails. It will be like we’re having our own little girls’ night in. I can’t wait to see how your drinks turn out! I always love when you share that you’ve tried my recipes – nothing makes me happier than knowing that you’re enjoying them and sharing them with friends!

MAKING A LAVENDER PASSION FRUIT MARTINI: MY TOP TIPS

Now that I’ve made this cocktail fruit martini recipe a few times, I finally feel like I have the hang of it. Here are a few things that I’ve learned along the way.

First off, don’t be afraid to really garnish your martini glass. It makes your martini so much more beautiful, and all the more fun to serve to guests – after all, who doesn’t love getting their drink in a fun cocktail glass instead of an ordinary one? This may be an easy passion fruit lavender cocktail, but it doesn’t have to look like it!

Speaking of passion fruit, be sure that you use high-quality passion fruit nectar. If you can’t find it, feel free to experiment with passion fruit juice, or even fresh passion fruit. Personally, I feel like the passion fruit nectar works the best, but if you’re in a pinch, I’m never opposed to experimenting. 

Finally, feel free to switch to lime if you’re not a fan of lemon! The lemon juice can easily be switched for lime juice for a super summery beverage that will be deliciously memorable.

Lavendar Lemon Cocktail

Lavender Passion Martini


  • Author: Iesha Vincent
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Cocktails 1x

Description

Lavender is not only aromatic but also has a great taste that many aren’t aware of. This gin-based martini is a fresh, passionate drink that is perfect for date night.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 oz Gin
  • 3/4 cup of Passion Fruit Nectar
  • 1/2 oz of lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp of lavender syrup
  • 1 tsp of simple syrup
  • Lavender ( to garnish )
  • Don’t Forget Me ( to garnish )
  • Fresh Lemons ( for garnish and/or lemon juice – see notes )

Instructions

  1. Add gin, lemon juice, passion fruit nectar, lavender syrup, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice and shake.
  3. Pour contents over ice in a martini glass.
  4. Garnish with food-grade lavender and a lemon wedge.
  5. Serve.

Notes

  • Floral Lavender Ice Cube: Get an ice tray and fill 1/2 full, add in lavender and ‘Don’t Forget Me’ pieces and freeze for 1-2 hours or until the portion is frozen. Top off with water and let ice cubes fully freeze // about 4-6 hours total depending on the size of your ice cube trays. You can purchase the food-grade florals on Amazon.
  • If using fresh lemons for lemon juice and to use as a garnish, cut out wedges to garnish prior to squeezing remaining lemon into a cocktail shaker. I typically cut the lemon in half and then cut a wedge out of one of the halves then squeeze the remaining halves.
