Directions
  1. Make the Blackberry Lavender Syrup: Combine the blackberries and honey in a glass container with a lid and use a fork to thoroughly mash the blackberries and honey together until you have a thick, fairly uniform paste. Add the lavender flowers, stir to combine, and cover and transfer to the refrigerator. Allow mixture to sit for 24 hours. Alternatively, add the blackberries and 2 tablespoons of water to a small saucepan and mash with a fork. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in the honey and lavender and let sit for 15 minutes. Continue to the next step.
  1. Strain the blackberry mixture through a fine mesh strainer, muslin cloth, or cheesecloth. Using the back of a spoon if using a strainer, or your hands if using a cloth option, gently press the liquid out of the mixture and into a clean glass container with a tight-fitting lid. Discard berry seeds and spent lavender. Cover and transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use. Mixture will keep for up to 1 week.
  1. To make the Blackberry Lavender Spritzer: Combine 6-8 ounces of cold sparkling water with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the prepared syrup (use the larger amount for a stronger, sweeter taste). Stir gently and add ice if desired. Serve immediately.

    This looks so yummy! The video does not include the stove top portion of the printed recipe. Is this an option?

  • Absolutely! The stove top blackberry lavender syrup option is great if you don’t have 24 hours for the syrup to sit.
