INGREDIENTS
fresh lavender
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water
Desired bubbly (champagne)

DIRECTIONS
In a medium saucepan bring equal parts water and sugar to a simmer. Place clippings of fresh lavender in the pan (about 5 stems). Let mixture steep for 30 minutes to create your lavender simple syrup.

Let syrup cool and strain. Once the syrup has been cooled and strained, pour the syrup into a pitcher. Pour 1 teaspoon of lavender syrup into your champagne glasses and top off with chilled champagne.

Use a sprig of lavender or dried lavender buds for garnish.
