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!

I’m a huge fan of nice smelling dresser drawers. I mean, who isn’t right? Sachets are an excellent way to keep your clothes smelling wonderful. For those who aren’t sure, a sachet is a small bag scented with whatever scent you choose. My favorites are lavender and cedar. Some of the sachets you can purchase in stores are pretty expensive and the smell doesn’t even last that long. Since I already had the felt lying around, I was able to make these sachets for under $5 bucks! I thought instead of a boring old square, we could make them into tiny articles of clothing. It’s a quick and easy craft that would make a sweet gift as well!
