Lavender Hill Cob

Lavender Hill Cob

Though it may seem demure, lavender should be handled with a delicate touch in drinks lest it overpower other ingredients. Here, gently deployed, it lends its gorgeous floral flavor and aroma to a tall, icy and refreshing cobbler. A small measure of crème de violette deepens the floral nature of this drink and adds a faint purplish haze. (The name honors the brilliant Ealing Studios comedy, "The Lavender Hill Mob," starring Alec Guinness).
