Lady Lavender Mocktail by The Merry Thought
1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/2 tbsp Lavender Simple Syrup
1/4 tsp Grenadine
3 dashes Bitters
Lavender Simple Syrup

Combine 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tbsp dried lavender to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat. Let mixture cool in the pan and then strain out the lavender. Combine above in shaker with ice and shake until cold. Strain into glass and top off with club soda. Garnish with fresh lavender.
