Author Notes: The lemon juice reacts with the lavender and makes the syrup turn a light pink. - Sadassa_Ulna
Makes one cup syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 lemon
- 2-3 tablespoons fresh (or dried) lavender buds
- In a small non-reactive saucepan bring one cup water and lavender to a boil, add sugar and lower to a simmer.
- Peel the lemon with a vegetable peeler and add to the mix. After cooking ten minutes, juice the lemon and add to the mix. The mix should turn a faint pink. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Pour into a glass container; after 2-3 days strain mixture. It will have turned a little more pink. Mix 1-3 tablespoons into a glass of bubbly water and add ice.
