Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Lavender Lemonade


Woody Creek Colorado 100% Potato Vodka


Lavender syrup

Garnished with a lemon twirl

Despite the fact it’s offseason, I’ve been feeling a bit anxious lately. I’m not really sure why, but I know I’m a bit on edge and am seeking ways to settle down a bit. And while I am aware that alcohol is not the answer to my problems, I do find a drink soothes the nerves now and again. So imagine my delight when our friends at Woody Creek Distillers sent over their summer drink menu featuring the “Lavender Lemonade.” This is a drink that’s sure to be calming — according to, “research shows the scent lowers heart rate and blood pressure, putting you in a relaxed state.” Ahhhh, I can taste the vibe already.
