Montanya’s Green River Martini

3 oz Cucumber Platino Infusion  (To infuse one bottle of Montanya Platino, slice 1 cucumber into the rum and allow to infuse for 2 days.  For 1/2 a bottle, use 1/2 a cucumber and so on)
3 Mint leaves
1-2 Oz Lavender Simple Syrup  (see below)
½ Fresh Squeezed Lime
Shake vigorously and strain into a martini or champagne glass
Garnish with Lime Slice and Mint leaf on top

Honey Lavender Simple Syrup:
(This syrup also makes a delicious addition to hot tea, hot cocoa, fresh lemonade and iced tea.  It keeps in the fridge for up to a month)
In a saucepan:
4 c Water
1 ½ c  Sugar
2 c dry Lavender flowers

Bring to light simmer, stirring often.  Remove from heat.
Add 2 Cups Honey (our favorite is Honeyville!)
Pour into a Jar and refrigerate (without lid) until cool and ready.
(Lavender may stay in the jar infusing for up to 4 days for a stronger lavender flavor)
Pour through fine strainer.
