Lavender, lemon and chamomile margaritas

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

8 oz tequila

4 Meyer lemons (or regular lemons if that's all available)

8 oz lavender chamomile syrup (recipe below)

coconut sugar (can substitute any dark sugar) for rimming

coarse salt for rimming

optional: sparkling water 

Instructions:

Rim all the glasses by running half of a lemon around the rim

Combine coarse salt and coconut sugar on a small plate and twist the top of your glass in the salt/sugar mixture.  (I added lavender and chamomile to mine and it looked pretty but some people might not like the flowers in their mouth)

Combine tequila, juice of all the lemons, and the syrup in a jar with a lid and shake to mix. Divide between 4 glasses, top with ice and garnish with a lavender flower.  Optional: add sparkling water to give it a little bubbly.  

Bottoms up!

 

Lavender chamomile syrup

2 T dried lavender flowers

2 T dried chamomile

1 cup organic sugar

1 cup water

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer on med-low heat. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, cool for about 5 minutes and strain into a jar with a lid.  Store leftovers (if you have any) in the fridge.  You can also make a little bubbly drink for the kiddos with this syrup and some sparkling water.  My guys love lavender and lemon spritzers!
