1. The Harrier
Mixologist Greg Best named his lavender-scented riff on a Greyhound—made with gin instead of vodka—after a dog known for its keen sense of smell: the harrier.

2. Lavandou
While spending his last summer vacation in the south of France, mixologist Romée de Goriainoff was inspired by the fields of lavender all around to create this drink.

3. Le Midi
This lavender-infused cocktail gets its vibrant hue from a blueberry simple syrup. 

4. Lavender Martini
This fragrant combination of vanilla vodka and lavender is like aromatherapy. 

5. Lavender-Sage Sling
This fizzy herbal cocktail would be a great aperitif before a dinner of spring lamb.
