Made with just sugar, water and dried lavender buds, this easy lavender syrup adds floral flavor to drinks and desserts and will fill your kitchen with South-of-France fragrance. Try it in cocktails, ice tea, lattes or sparkling water, or use it to sweeten whipped cream, custards or frostings or as a delicious soak for cake layers or ladyfingers. Pour it into an attractive bottle for a great gift.



  1. Place the water, sugar, and lavender in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 15 minutes. Strain and cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to a week.
