{Friday Cocktail} Relax and Sparkle

I've been all about champagne cocktails as of late. This is something I tested out last night, and I have to tell y'all it's SO good. I love the aromatics of the lavender and the sweetness of the blueberries. Plus its sparkly and slightly purple. Oh, and really easy. What's not to love. 

Really all you need to do is heat up 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar until the sugar dissolves. 
Continue to heat it at a medium-low temperature for about 8 minutes (so the syrup will set). 
Be careful not to burn the sugar. You aren't making caramel here people. 

After you think the syrup is sufficiently thick take off the heat. 
Throw in lavender (with flowers) and blueberries and let that steep for about 10 minutes. 
Keep the simple syrup in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Now just add 1 Tbsp to a champagne glass then top with champagne. 

 Have a great weekend ladies!

I have not tried lavender in a beverage before but I think it would be great. I love gin & tonics with some lemon. Most recently I have been drinking whiskey with tonic water and a little lime & lemon!
