Adapted from a recipe by Cloud Davidson, bar manager at Crowbar in Corvallis, Oregon.

  • 2 ounces lavender-infused vodka*
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 3/4 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 2 ounces lemon-lime soda

Fill a cocktail shaker two-thirds full of ice and add the vodka, triple sec and orange juice. Shake for approximately 15 seconds, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with the soda.

*To make lavender-infused vodka, pour a 750-ml bottle of vodka over a small handful of dried lavender in a large jar. Allow to sit for one week, then strain the vodka through a double layer of moistened cheesecloth back into the bottle.
