I found it to be extremely weak, I normally boil my simple syrup down to be somewhat on the thicker side, maybe not enough lavender buds, I don't know?

I made this as is. It makes my cocktails taste fresh. Gin, little of this syrup ,juice of half lemon ice and top off with club soda. Yummy! Tastes like Spring!

I used moon water, and it is delicious in my lavender honey latte. My house smells nice too.

I made this plus added lavender oil. I also added food coloring to make it a purple color. Made this with my own lavender I grow. This makes a very yummy lavender ~lemon drop.

Used 4 t of lavender for a stronger flavor and let simmer for 20 mins to thicken. OMG so good drizzled over a savarin!!

Went with half the sugar, changed nothing else, and it’s a lightly sweet floral addition to cocktails and lattes!

I added 2 more tablespoons of lavender buds to the warm mixture and then made a Lavender Cheesecake. Oh. My. Goodness. Super yum!
