Last week I read on a social media networking page about a Prosecco Lavender Cocktail that sounded delicious and would be ideal to serve during our hot summer months here in Tenerife.
There was only one problem, I don´t drink. But that is neither here nor there as the non-alcoholic version I made during the blistering heat of our calima on Monday using sparkling San Pellegrino was delicious.
2 or 3 drops of food grade lavender oil
Juice from 4 lemons
1 drop purple food colouring (optional)
Cold sparkling water
- To make the syrup, combine the sugar, and water in a small saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
- Combine lemon juice, syrup, and 2 or 3 (depending on taste) drops of lavender oil.
- Add food colouring if desired.
To serve, fill the bottom of each glass with a measure of lavender lemon syrup, and top with sparkling water. Serve with ice and lemon slices.
Of course there is nothing to stop you substituting the sparkling water with Prosecco 🙂
