Cocktail Recipe: Treuse
While most of us are back indoors again, this herbaceous and floral cocktail is like a stroll through a lavender field on a summer's day, courtesy of Terrazza.
You can find lavender syrup at a specialty drinks shop or make your own by soaking dried lavender in simple syrup for 3-5 days. If you're wondering about the chartreuse, the green, herbaceous French liqueur made of macerated plants, it won't be so easy to make yourself: it's distilled by Carthusian monks in France and based on a 400-year-old secret recipe. Only two monks will ever know the formulation at a given time as it gets passed on through the ages.

.5 ounce fresh lemon juice
.5 ounce lavender syrup
.5 ounce green chartreuse
Place all ingredients in a bar shaker with 4 large ice cubes and shake vigorously for a minute. Strain chilled ingredients into a chilled stemmed martini glass and serve with a twisted orange peel as garnish.
