1 bottle gin
1 tbsp dried English lavender
1. Pour about 2 cups of the gin into a saucepan and add the lavender. Over low heat, bring the mixture to a boil, watching it very carefully. Alcohol boils at 175°F, so it will boil in much less time than water. Once the gin has boiled, remove it from the heat and let cool. Strain the infused gin through a funnel lined with a coffee filter or cheesecloth back into the bottle.
2. To make the drink, fill a glass with ice and add 2 oz. of the lavender gin to the glass. Top with the lemonade and garnish with a sprig of fresh lavender and a slice of lemon.
