A Maymont Afternoon

For Graffiato bartender Suzy Critchlow, premium moonshine is a blank canvas that allows her to mix a variety of ingredients into cocktails and punches. She refers to A Maymont Afternoon as a “lavender flip.” The cocktail features lavender simple syrup, lemon juice, vermouth, egg white and a garnish of fresh lavender.

Carefully separate egg white into a shaker tin and add the rest of the ingredients. Seal your tin and give it a good dry shake (without ice). Once everything is nicely frothed add ice and proceed to your wet shake (with ice). Shake until the tin is nice and cold and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a fresh lavender bud.
