Lilac Blush

July 21, 2023

The Lilac Blush harkens back to 2020 (remember those days)? Our backyards are filled with native lilacs in the spring, and we crafted a lilac simple syrup from the fresh blossoms. Combined with our floral Native Colorado Gin and fresh muddled lemon, the Lilac Blush is beautifully balanced, delicate, and a true Colorado Dry Land original.



Garnish: Dried or Fresh Lemon Slice Float
Glass: Coupe or Absinth Glass


  1. Muddle lemon in shaker.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients with lemon and ice and shake briskly for ~15 seconds.
  3. Double strain into chilled glassware.
  4. Garnish with lemon slice float

Lilac Simple Syrup

Add fresh lilac blossoms to 1.5 cups water bring to boil, cover turn down to simmer for 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Strain out blossoms and add 1.5 cups sugar to hot liquid. Stir until dissolved. Once cooled, store in a jar in the refrigerator.
