Directions

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 cup water, the sugar, lavender and mint sprigs. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Cool and strain.

In a blender, add the cooled syrup, raspberries and lime juice and blend until smooth.

To serve, place some of the raspberry puree in the bottom of each glass, top with seltzer water and garnish each glass with a sprig of mint.

    This was great, but I used strawberries that were about to spoil instead of raspberries. The lavender really added something special too.

    Really delicious summer drink. Easy to adjust sweetness level with amount of seltzer you add. I used lavender and mint from my garden. Perfect!

    This is one of the tastiest drinks I've ever had in my life. I couldn't find any lavender sprigs at my grocery store, so I went ahead and used just the mint in the simple syrup. It was the perfect balance of flavors. Refreshing, but not too sweet. I will make this again and again and again!
