Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice Approx. 6 lemons
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups cold sparkling water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 t lavender buds fresh or dried

Instructions

  1. Prepare honey lavender syrup by combining 1 1/2 cup water, 1 cup honey, and lavender buds in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  As soon as it boils remove from heat and let sit for about 15 - 20 minutes.

  2. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring the water and sugar to a boil, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Allow simple syrup to cool, and then refrigerate.
  3. Strain syrup through a fine-mesh sieve, or a strainer lined with cheesecloth or a coffee filter.  Discard lavender.
