Summer's here and it's time for fresh flavors! What better way to cool off and savor the rising temps than with a lavender lemon gin fizzy?
Keep It Savory's Johanna Thompson has developed this delectable and simple cocktail to highlight her stunning salts. Simply rim your glass with your favorite Keep It Savory salt (we love Lavender Sage or Mediterranean Citrus for this recipe), combine your ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and enjoy! And then, as Johanna says, "think of baby angels." Cheers!
