Strawberry Lavender Simple Syrup

Add some sparkle and flavour to your summer gatherings with delicious summer mocktails! Strawberries and Lavender are a match made in heaven - make this simple syrup when fields are full of sweet strawberries. 

We grow all sorts of berries at our farm and love to create flavourful fruit and herb syrups to enjoy throughout the summer months.

If you haven't time to make your own fruit syrups, you can improvise with Lavender Simple Syrup. Place fresh berries into a glass, and lightly crush with a wooden spoon. Drizzle 5-15mL of lavender syrup over berries, then fill the glass with chilled sparkling water. Refreshing and delicious!
