    BecR's Note:

    An exquisite blend of lavender flowers and herbes de Provence makes for a pleasant, refreshing cordial--perfect for a summer's day! Stir into lemonade, teas, ice-water, champagne or cocktails, -or- drizzle on pound cake, waffles, pastries, puddings or fruit. Lovely! I like to make this in the early summertime, when the lavender flowers are still fresh! Try it in my Provence Lavender Cocktail, or whisk a few spoonfuls into whipped cream, or thicken with powdered sugar for a glaze. Makes a beautiful hostess or Christmas gift, tied with a pretty lavender ribbon!
