New Cocktail! The Bogie!

Lets make a Bogie!

bogie in Indian English,[1] is a vehicle on a rail transport system(railroad or railway) that is used for the carrying of cargo or passengers.

I modeled this cocktail on a traditional sidecar. It is stirred. Not shaken. 

The Bogie:
1 small jar (or rocks glass)
2oz brandy
Freshly snipped Lavender
1 Lemon
1/2 Tablespoon Simple Syrup
6-8 oz Soda Water
4 cubes of Ice

Muddle lavender in glass
add Ice
add juice of one half of lemon
add simple syrup
top with soda water 
Top with a Twist of lemon
(take a paring knife and cut around the lemon in one unbroken strip)

I added a rose. That was just for show. You could do it too.
It may get in the way. It looks really pretty, though.
Damn, this is good. 
Almost too good.
I had three.
