The sugar/lemon balance will depend on what types of lemons you are using (Meyer lemons are less tart than regular lemons), and your own preference for sweetness.
While all varieties of lavender are edible, English lavender and Provence lavender are most often used for culinary purposes.
If you use fresh, garden flowers, make sure they have not been sprayed with pesticides. Do not use florist flowers.
- 1 tsp lavender flowers
- 4 pumps of simple syrup or 1/4 cup white, granulated sugar (sweeten to taste)
- 1/2 cup of boiling water for the infusion
- 1/4-1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
