Ingredients

  • 1 cup lemon sorbet
  • 2 Tbsp lavender simple syrup (recipe below)
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (the kind in the carton), or dairy/dairy alternative of your choice
  • Soda water

Lavender Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup dried lavender
  • 2-3 drops purple food coloring, optional

Instructions

  • Add lemon sorbet to a tall glass and drizzle lavender simple syrup over it. Pour coconut milk into glass and top off with soda water.

Lavender Simple Syrup

  • Put water, sugar, and dried lavender in a medium saucepan, stir, and bring to a boil.
  • Once mixture comes to a boil, lower to a simmer and let simmer for about 10 minutes, until it thickens.
  • Turn off the heat, cover the saucepan, and let steep for about an hour.
  • Push syrup through a mesh sieve to strain out lavender buds and into an airtight container. Place in fridge to cool. If you want the simple syrup to be a more vibrant color, add a couple drops of purple food coloring.

Notes

  • Recipe makes enough lavender simple syrup for about 8 drinks.
  • Feel free to add 1.5 oz. of vodka to this drink to make it an alcoholic float!
