This drink was mixologist Gregory Best's response to a woman dressed in lavender who tottered into Restaurant Eugene with friends for a nightcap. "My darling," she said, "one more will put me directly over the edge. Fruit juice, please."

  1. Ice
  2. 3 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
  3. 3/4 ounce Lavender Syrup
  4. 2 ounces chilled club soda
  5. 1 basil sprig
  6. 1 fresh lavender sprig (optional)
  7. 1/4 ounce grenadine, preferably homemade
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the grapefruit juice, Lavender Syrup and grenadine and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass, stir in the club soda and garnish with the basil and lavender sprigs.
