Lavender Haze Cocktail

Updated: Aug 8, 2023

I'm obsessed with Taylor Swift and The Eras Tour currently. The imagery in the Lavender Haze music video is just so dreamy so I decided to create a Lavender Haze-inspired Cocktail to sip on while scrolling SwiftTok and Instagram and watching videos.

This cocktail features egg whites, which I wasn't sure about at first, but after making a few different versions of this drink, I realized, it NEEDS the egg. They add a subtle creaminess to the drink and it doesn't taste like egg at all.

It makes it even prettier and looks like the clouds Taylor is floating on during the Lavender Haze music video. So let's share out how we made this pretty cocktail!

Lavender Haze Cocktail

Ingredients:

2 oz Empress Gin 1908

3/4 oz lemon juice (we use this juicer)

3/4 oz simple syrup

1 egg white

large ice cube

dried edible lavender flowers, optional as garnish


Notes: This serves up perfectly in a coupe glass and makes 1 drink.


Instructions:
  1. Chill your coupe glass in the freezer for a few minutes, while you prepare the drink.

  2. In a cocktail shaker add the Empress Gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, and lavender bitters.

  3. Dry shake for 15 seconds, no ice.

  4. Add the ice cube to your shaker, wet shake for 20-30 seconds.

  5. Double-strain the drink into your chilled coupe glasses. At first it will look very white but after a minute, it settles to this lovely lavender color.

  6. Garnish with dried lavender flowers if desired

Note about egg whites: Adding egg whites to your cocktails is a very old-fashioned thing and perfectly safe as long as your egg stays chilled. The egg white adds a rich creamy texture and for this drink, it represents the clouds that we see in the Lavender Haze music video.
