Lily my Love cocktail

Recently, I photographed cocktails for Huntsville Event Magazine at The Bottle. This cocktail, which is equal parts delicious, fresh, beautiful, was created but the talented chef Ryan Stone.  Go to The Bottle and check out all of their other cocktails.

Lily, My Love

Recipe by Ryan Stone

1oz Lillet Blanc

1oz Hendrick’s Gin

0.5oz Real Grenadine

0.5oz Fresh Lemon Juice

1 coarsely chopped Strawberry

1 bar spoon Lavender Tincture

In a mixing tin, add the strawberry, grenadine, and lemon juice. Muddle gently for 10 seconds. Add Lillet Blanc and Hendrick’s Gin to the mixing tin and add ice to the 3/4’s full line. Shake vigorously. Strain the cocktail twice into a coupe glass. Layer the lavender tincture on top of the drink. Garnish with a thin strawberry slice and mint sprig.1Y2B7543

I am a freelance photographer and writer, working for various magazines, cookbooks and blogs. I love what I do, but I have a lot of restrictions depending on which brand and publication I'm working for. This blog gives me the opportunity to have fun. I'm also a pretty terrible cook, so this blog is forcing me to learn some kitchen skills, which is both thrilling and infuriating. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, half as much as I enjoy making it.
