"Here is a take on Peruvian pisco sour cocktails; here it is vamped up with the use of apple cider and lavender simple syrup. If you don't grow your own lavender, culinary lavender is so easy to find. I bought some through Amazon and not only is it so good in recipes, but the aroma also is outstanding and if placed in sachets and then put into clothing drawers, it'll make everything smell terrific."

Empty the ice water from the champagne coupe. Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into the chilled champagne coupe. Add 1-2 dashes of bitters to the drink. Garnish with lavender (optional) sprig and serve.

Pisco Sours are one of my favorite cocktails, and I tend to be a purist when it comes to classic cocktails. I usually hate messing with a good thing. But this was a great exception! The lavender syrup was super good, and didn't overpower. I did use the food coloring and loved the presentation, along with the flavor. We'll definitely be making these again!
