Lemon Lavender Syrup

Ingredients for Lemon Lavender Syrup

When I follow Whole30 I'm always looking for compliant drink options (no sugar, alcohol, or additives). This recipe quickly became one of my favourites – a simple (sugar free!) syrup to mix with sparkling water. Citrus is in season and this would taste delicious in a gin fizz as well – enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp organic / cooking grade lavender flowers

Keeps well in the fridge for up to two weeks

 

Instructions

  1. Put lavender in a tea ball and combine with lemon juice and water in a small pot.
  2. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and let stand for 3 hours.
  4. Mix 1 tbsp with soda water (or gin to make a fizz) and enjoy!
