This cocktail is perfect for summer! A delicious combination of fruity and floral, this cocktail is made with gin, grapefruit juice and tonic water. It's great for patio sipping.


  • 1.5 oz Scapegrace gin
  • 3 thin slices of watermelon
  • 1/3 ounces lavender syrup
  • 0.5 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 2 ounces tonic water


  1. Fill your balloon glass (or wine glass) with ice and watermelon slices. Add your gin, lavender syrup, grapefruit juice and top with tonic water. Give this a good stay and enjoy. For that extra floral influence, add roses to your ice cubes.
  2. To make the lavender syrup, combine one cup granulated sugar and one cup of boiled water and give this a stir. Place your two sprigs of lavender inside the syrup and let this come to room temperature before use. Strain and this can hold in the fridge for up to two weeks.
