Lavender’s Blue

…dilly dilly, lavender’s green. When I am King, dilly dilly, you shall be Queen. 

Here’s a DIY on how to make your own lavender cordial. Add to gin with a splash of lemonade.
  • 200g sugar
  • About 50g fresh lavender blooms, stripped from their stems
  • 1-2 freshly squeezed lemons, strained.


Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar with 500mls of water in a saucepan and boil until the sugar dissolves, it takes roughly about 1 minute.

Remove from heat, add the lavender blooms and cover. Let stand for 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.

Strain syrup and discard lavender

Decant in to a beautiful vintage bottle (or any odd one you can find)
