From Martha Stewart Living Radio Blog. Try using in the Blue Lavender Mojito recipe I posted from the same source. Cook time does not include 30 minute steep time.

I brought the syrup to a boil, but since my sugar appeared pretty much dissolved by then, I just turned off the heat (without removing saucepan), and steeped for 30 minutes. I also doubled the lavender. Wonderful in hot (or cold) chocolate, lemonade, fruit salad, sparkling water, iced tea, whipped cream, cocktails, on ice cream, etc. On sleepless nights, try adding a spoonful to hot milk for ultimate relaxation!


  1. Bring ingredients to a boil in saucepan, stirring so that the sugar dissolves. Reduce heat and continue stirring until all the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove lavender blossoms and allow syrup to cool.
  4. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated.
