Partially I am posting this because the picture itself makes me think of sun and patio and holidays. Which makes me immediately thirsty.
Tad and I pulled this one together for another one of the Globe Quick fix recipes, but it really is tasty and I wanted to share the simple recipe.
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup dried lavender buds
Juice of 1 fresh lemon (50 ml)
3 cups sparkling water (such as San Pellegrino)
1/4 cup agave syrup
In a small pot, add water and dried lavender buds (you can buy them online or at most specialty food stores). Bring to a simmer for 7-8 minutes until reduced. Strain the infused liquid – you should have about 1/4 cup. Place in the fridge to cool.
Juice the lemon and add to a pitcher with sparkling water. Mix in agave syrup and lavender infusion and serve immediately.
Tip: This ratio works for me, but you may want to add the lavender infusion and agave gradually to adjust the desired sweetness and floral intensity.

It was great to meet you last week in Kitchener at Kelsie’s class. Your work in the cheese world is so valuable! I’ve decided not to visit TGCCF this weekend, but look forward to connecting with you in the future. One idea I’ve had is to host a wine and cheese event on a chartered cruise in the Toronto harbour…not this summer, but next! Would be cool to have you work on that too!
‘Til next time,
