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

    How did you find the drink? I generally don’t like the taste of lavendar in my food and drinks, reminds me too much of toilet freshener haha.

After growing up in Melbourne I took off overseas to work as a features reporter, based predominately in Asia, writing for some international publications, through this work I was able to visit many different places writing articles on food, travel, fashion, human rights, art & culture.

Now back ‘home’ I am currently involved with an ongoing project doing menu & recipe development where I get to test out new recipes with a team of chefs & food technologists on a daily basis.

I started this blog mainly as a way to keep all my notes and photos in one place, to connect with other food lovers and share some thoughts on food in general and recipes with you.

I am an urban cook & this is my journal.
