Rum-i


Come to the orchid in Spring.
there is light and wine, and
sweethearts in the pomegranate flowers.

Lavender Mojito (makes one drink)
8-10 mint leaves
1 oz lavender simple syrup (recipe below)
1 oz white rum
1/2 of a lime’s juice

Directions:
Muddle mint leaves and simple syrup together. Add the rum, lime and lots of ice and shake. Pour everything into a mason jar and top with club soda. Stir again to mix it all together.

Lavender Simple Syrup (makes about 6-8 mojitos)
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
4 tablespoons dried lavender for cooking

Directions:
Bring everything to a boil for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then let it all simmer for another 15-20 minutes or longer if you prefer more lavender. The longer it simmers and sits, the more taste and smell you’ll get from the lavender. Strain the liquid into a bowl to remove the bits of lavender. Pour into a  jar and refrigerate. Enjoy!
