Cocktails + Cosplay is back, and with another special, Trekkie-themed drink! This week, we take a stab at Deanna Troi’s Lemonade, a fun, lavender-prosecco cocktail by Happiness is Homemade.
Follow the recipe below for the coolest intergalactic spin on Sunday brunch mimosas any proud geek could ask for.
Deanna Troi’s Lemonade:
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of lemon juice
- 3/4 cup of water
- 1 tbsp dried lavender, fresh lavender, or 3 drops of food grade lavender oil
- 2-3 drops of neon purple food coloring (optional)
- Santa Margherita Prosecco DOCG
Combine the sugar, lemon juice, water, lavender, and optional food coloring and simmer over low-medium heat for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 15 minutes and pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove the lavender buds from the syrup. Fill the bottom of each glass with 2 oz of lavender lemon syrup, and top it off with 6 oz of Prosecco.
Thanks for hanging out with us, and come back next week for more fandom fashion + boozy, nerdy goodness!
