DIY: Lavender Honey Soda by Gardenista
First, harvest from five to six lavender flowers, leaving a few inches of stem with leaves on each.
Next, make a simple syrup. Bring two cups of water to a boil, and add 1/2+ cup of honey.
Add your lavender flowers to the syrup and turn off the heat. Let them steep for from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how floral you prefer your soda.
Pour one or two inches of simple syrup into a glass, add ice, club soda, and a generous squeeze of lemon.
Then sit back and enjoy your garden.
