Ode to Aud

Every now and again, it’s nice to relax with a gourmet drink.  Sure, a beer, glass of wine or a simple mixed drink is nice, but there is a type of culinary excellence and gastronomic pleasure that comes from sitting down with a well crafted, gourmet drink.
This drink recipe was crafted by Naomi Schimek, mixologist at The Spare Room at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Called the Ode to Aud, this drink is a manifestation of a love of Japanese green tea-infused Millers Gin and lavender foam. This drink is simple enough to craft after a long day at work yet elegant enough to transport your mind to a posh, private club. Relax and enjoy!
