"How To Make Homemade Lavender and Rose Simple Syrups" ~ When I went to Provence, I brought back some Lavender Syrup. The French are big in putting these flavored syrups in water or Perrier. I finally made some today. I used fresh lavender which makes the syrup come out more clear and colorless which makes the violet food coloring give it the perfect color. I add this syrup to my iced tea! C'est Bon!
