Ingredients

For simple syrup:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 2-3 drops lavender food coloring optional

Instructions

For simple syrup:

  1. Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, add lavender, and allow to step for 10 minutes. Strain the lavender and transfer lavender simple syrup to an airtight container. If you would like it to be purple in color, add the food coloring at this point and stir to combine. Cool to room temperature before using.
