Here’s the newest installment of managing your bar! Today’s DIY will show you how you can make your own lavender simple syrup. This is a really great way to add the flavor of lavender without it being overwhelming.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3 1/2 TBSP culinary lavender*
*you can use regular lavender leaves but it won’t taste as good as culinary lavender. I purchased mine from amazon.
Bring the cup of water and the lavender to a boil. Stir in the sugar and whisk until the sugar has completely dissolved. Whisk another 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool. Using a bar strainer, strain out the lavender.
That’s it! Keep your syrup in a bottle or a jar in the fridge. It will keep for 10 days.
Next time I will show you a cocktail to create from the items we’ve made so far!
