LAVENDER SPRITZ

I collected several sprigs of  lavender flowers  from my lavender plant in the back yard and put them in a bottle of 45 proof vodka for a week. During that time vodka became tinted reddish as the lavender oils seeped in to it. When I opened the bottle I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet scent of lavender. Well,  it was pretty strong so I decided to mix it with lemon-lime seltzer. It was like drinking liquid lavender with an amazing refreshing taste. I put one drop of blue food coloring in to my glass and achieved this color.I think it is worth trying at least once.

I am totally trying this! I love lavender, and use to make lavender ice cream and pannacotta, so a lavendel drink seems like a perfect idea to me!
