makes 1 serving
- 8-10 mint leaves
- 2 tbsp. lavender simple syrup (To make 6-8 servings of this, you’ll need: 1 cup sugar, 2 cups water and 4 tbsp. dried lavender for cooking)

For Lavender simple syrup: In a medium saucepan, bring sugar, water, and dried lavender to a boil over medium high heat stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Then reduce heat and let simmer for another 15-20 minutes. Strain the simple syrup into a fine mesh strainer to remove excess lavender. Store in a jar or airtight container.
