So what's a girl to do with a bag of lavender that's never been touched by
chemicals? Lavender syrup, that's what!


A dash of this to your lemonade (and a few fresh sprigs thrown in just to pretty it up!) gives you an amazing and refreshing drink on a hot summer's day
- and it's easy as pie to make! All you need is sugar, water and dried (food grade) lavender.
