Here is the recipe for Lavender Aviation Punch:
1. infuse good quality vodka with organic lavender overnight
2. filter several times through a coffee filter until clear
3. add honey simple syrup to taste (made by heating honey in water)
4. combine 4 parts gin of your choice with 1 part lime juice, 2/3 part Luxardo maraschino and 1/3 part lavender infusion.
I was also very happy to see Steve (0f Lethe Press) for the first time since the book has come out and he seemed glad to see me as well, which is more than any poet can reasonably hope.
