A cocktail straight out of the garden, the garden patch smash is inspired by a patch of flowering plants. It is a fresh, sweet, and delicious drink that combines the taste of fresh berries with tequila and Dry Sparkling’s lovely lavender soda, which is so much fun to mix with. To make the recipe, a raspberry-lavender syrup is required. Those will have to be made at home, but they are as simple to make as any simple syrup.
This handy syrup you can rely on all summer long to make fresh sodas, both with and without booze. It is essential to serve Dry’s lavender soda with this cocktail because it adds a rich, fragrant component to the drink and because it is not sugary like many other sodas. Luckily, it’s becoming easier to find it in stores, and you can order it online. If you need a quick alternative, you can use club soda, but it’s still tasty while it doesn’t have lavender.
