Thirsty Thursday: Lavender Champagne

If you know me, you know my goto drink is champagne and I am always looking for new ways to add a little flavor to my favorite cocktail.  I usually like to add  a pinch of chambord to mychampagne glass but this new recipie sounds so interesting I can't wait to try it.

Ingredients, Makes 16
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon dried lavender
4 bottles (750 mL each) dry Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled
Fresh lavender sprigs, for garnish


Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in dried lavender. Remove from heat. Let cool completely. Strain out lavender. Refrigerate syrup until ready to serve (up to 1 month). Pour about 6 ounces Champagne and 1 1/2 teaspoons syrup into each flute. Garnish each with a lavender sprig.
