Lavender Simple Syrup

Makes 2 cups

Lavender syrup adds a floral note to anything you can think to add it to, including lemonade, iced tea, or especially a tasty gin cocktail. Use the syrup to soak cake layers or to sweeten a fruit sorbet. Look for culinary-grade lavender at specialty markets or online.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon culinary lavender leaves

  1. In a medium pot, combine the sugar and water. While stirring, bring the mixture to a light simmer and cook just until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and add the lavender.
  2. Cover the pot and set aside to steep for about 30 minutes.
  3. Strain with a fine mesh strainer and refrigerate in a covered container.
