My friend Kathryn gave me this gorgeous little bottle of lavender liqueur and I was hooked. It’s fresh, herb-y flavor has so many potential uses (those will be future posts). Presentation is everything and I just love the little bottle. It would make a lovely gift, wouldn’t it? I know two things- 1) I had to share with my blog readers and 2) I will be making this on a regular basis because it is so dang good!
- 1/4 cup food grade dried lavender flowers
- 750 ml premium vodka
- 1/2 cup local honey
In a glass container, combine the lavender and the vodka. Allow to steep for three days. Strain off the lavender flowers then stir in the honey. Allow the sediment to settle. Let the liqueur to rest for two days. Strain the mixture through a paper strainer to remove any remaining bits of flowers and sediment. Store in glass containers.
