- 6 cups Water
- 3 cups Sugar
- 1/2 cup Culinary Lavender
- 1 cup Lemon Juice
- 1 Semi-Sweet Riesling or Cab Franc Rosé
First, make the concentrate: Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Then pour the boiled water over the sugar and stir until it is completely dissolved. Immediately add culinary lavender and let steep. Half lemons and squeeze until there is 1 cup of juice (or use lemon juice). Let the concentrate steep in the fridge for at least 2 days for best results.
When ready to serve, remove the lavender buds from the concentrate. Add remaining water (2 cups) and choice of wine. Enjoy!
