I have served the following recipe on two different occasions and it was a hit both times. It is very refreshing on a hot summer’s eve.
Lavender Margaritas: First make a sweet and sour mix with 3 cups sugar, 2 cups water, 1 tablespoon culinary lavender buds, 2 cups fresh lime juice, and 2 cups fresh lemon juice. In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar, water, and lavender. Bring to a boil over high heat and stir to dissolve the sugar. Cover, remove from the heat, and let steep for 5 minutes. Strain into a pitcher or large jar. Add the lime juice and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Next combine the mix in a large pitcher with 1 1/4 cups tequila and 3/4 cup orange liqueur. Add crushed ice. Cut a lime wedge and use to rub the rims of margarita glasses. Dip into sea salt. Fill glass with tequila mizture and enjoy. I served this at our 4th of July party and it was a hit!!!
