Lavender syrup

Lavender syrup, for use in cocktails

Lavender syrup is simple syrup made with lavender flowers, giving it a delicate floral flavor. Lavender syrup is naturally straw-yellow or light brown; some manufacturers add purple food coloring or purple-colored botanicals for a more attractive color.

If you have access to fresh or dried lavender, it’s easy to make your own syrup. In a saucepan, add a cup of sugar, a cup of water, and a tablespoon of lavender. You can also toss in a few blueberries for a natural purple color, or other herbs like thyme or rosemary. Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then remove from heat and allow to cool.

Once it’s cool, strain the syrup into a bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to two or three weeks.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
