Go on an aromatic adventure with the Lavender Granita, a drink that melds the fragrant and comforting taste of lavender with lemon and bitters for an extra zing. This is no ordinary drink: during its preparation, we utilize liquid nitrogen to make the Lavender Granita an enchanting and unforgettable drink experience.
