Lilac simple syrup is great to use to flavor all kinds of drinks or any recipe that calls for simple syrup. I love it in tea. It gives a faint & sweet lilac flavor to it!
1 cup filtered water
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup organic lilac blossoms, stems & leaves removed
Combine water & sugar over medium high heat. Heat until thoroughly dissolved. Add the lilac flowers & simmer for 10 minutes.
Strain mixture through a strainer with a very fine mesh or a cheesecloth.
Place syrup in a glass mason jar & store in the refrigerator.
Add desired amount to tea, lemonade or cocktail of your choice.
