Lavender has many benefits for the whole body and mind, but mainly, it’s a great soothing anything. The lavender syrup is a treat for either cold on a hot day or warm on a chilly evening.
This recipe uses sugar. If you want to switch to a sugar sweetener like stevia, try a sample before using a lot of lavender and then realize the sweetener you used tastes off! Lavender molecules can quickly become unpleasant if mixed with the wrong ingredients. However, I make sure that the syrup is charged in lavender, so very little is necessary to bring a subtle but delicious flavour and aroma to your drinks.
