Equal parts freshly squeezed lemon juice, white sugar and water. Heat up in a saucepan stirring so the sugar dissolves until boiling, take off heat. Add in dried lavender, about a handful. Let it steep for a few hours or at least until it has cooled down then add 2 tablespoons of honey and stir until dissolved.
Strain mixture through a sieve and bottle it. To use, pour about 50mls into a glass, more if you like it sweet and top up with soda water. Add a shot of vodka for adults only version and garnish with some lemon slices & lavender.
Other garnishing ideas include mint leaves or ice cubes with a few berries in them. I didn’t use colouring in this recipe but if you’d like a purple colour add a drop of red & blue colouring or frozen blueberry puree.
Best served with lunch or afternoon tea on a hot day
