Nothing is more glorious than the south of France in the summer-when the lavender is in full bloom and the air is intoxicating. As we celebrate the last official weekend of summer (fall begins on September 23rd ) we offer our house-made Lavender Martini and our French Se Bon playlist for you to enjoy.
We use the digital music streaming service Spotify to create a variety of playlists to suit our every mood and occasion. You can create playlists, import your iTunes, follow other users (we recommend LiveWell_bySLD of course!) and access your music from any of your devices.
We have been experimenting with infused simple syrups in the test kitchen all summer and find they add a tremendous, natural elegance to the drinks. The Lavendar Martini is clean, slightly mellow and the perfect way to toast the weekend.
