frolic fizz

2 oz Privateer White Rum
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
1 dash Lemon Juice
3/4 oz Lavender-Infused Honey Syrup (*)
1 dash Crème de Violette
1 Egg White

Shake with ice and strain into a Highball glass. Top with ~2 oz of soda water, garnish with dried lavender flowers, and add a straw.
(*) A 4:1 infused syrup. As a quick substitution, shake the drink with honey syrup and 1 tsp of dried lavender flowers. Add a fine straining step.
Two Thursdays ago, I stopped into Stoddard's for drinks. The house original that called out to me was Eric Cross's Frolic Fizz that was a delightful sounding flowery rum-based Silver Fizz. Bar manager Jamie Walsh later explained that the drink is an incredible seller which is a blessing except on Friday and Saturday nights. Once mixed, the lavender flower garnish contributed greatly to the drink's aroma. Next, a honey and grapefruit sip led into a rum swallow and a floral finish.

Oh, it's lavender petals! At first I thought it was garnished with candy.

Andrea loves those candies! Yup, dried lavender flowers which have the same shape.
