The Lavender Business is our own twist on the late Sasha Petraske’s The Business cocktail. Petraske took the classic Bees Knees cocktail and swapped the lemon for lime juice to impart an even livelier flavour into the drink. A simple move that created something truly spectacular.
Petraske was the owner of NYC’s now sadly closed Milk & Honey bar and was renowned for changing his phone number and email address at least once a year, along with being one of the leaders in the modern cocktail revolution.
Inspired by the first flushes of Spring and Petraske’s original recipe, our Kocktail curator Neil Donachie added the delicate essence of lavender into our house made honey syrup, to add our own twist into the annals of this classic cocktail’s story.
