Lavender Simple Syrup Recipe Serve With Sparkling Water And Edible Flower Ice Cubes

Lavender Soda + Lavender Syrup + Lavender Lemonade

I don’t know why but culinary lavender is not for everyone. I suppose some people don’t care for the sweet floral perfume of lavender while others (like me!) can’t get enough of this heavenly treat. This lavender simple syrup recipe is sure to be the uniting thread that brings both camps to an agreement. It’s delicious! Even the naysayers agree.Lavender soda recipe - made with beautiful homemade simple syrup

Use this syrup to sweeten a cocktail or jazz up some iced tea. It’s particularly good in lemonade, the resulting beverage looks as beautiful as it is tasty. Particularly when garnished with these edible flower ice cubes!Lavender simple syrup recipe - serve with sparkling water and edible flower ice cubes
