Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • zest of 1 lemon

  • 1/2 tsp lavender flowers- pick the flowers off and wash well

  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Add sugar and water to a pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 3-4 mins or until you have a thin syrup. Remove from the heat.

Add lavender flowers and zest of lemon. Leave to infuse until the syrup is cool.

Add ice into a jug, pour 4 cups of water into 1 cup of syrup. Stir through. Maybe add some fresh mint and slices of lemon.

Step 2

Add lemon juice to the syrup and stir through.

Pass off the syrup into a storage container or make up a jug straight away.

Step 3

Add ice into a jug, pour 4 cups of water into 1 cup of syrup. Stir through. Maybe add some fresh mint and lavender leaves, and slices of lemon.

Step 4

Store base syrup in the fridge for up to 2 months. 

I’ve made this recipe numerous times. Once you have the syrup base it can be mixed to your preference of sweetness.
