🌸 🍋 Lavender and Lilac with Lemon CRE8!
CRE8ion by Nyki Schaeffer
I made this CRE8 in hopes of testing the depth of how far I could take CRE8.
Lesson: absolutely no pith from the peels, and I’d filter the florals out in 6 hours. Pith is bitter and the buds will start turning bitter as the petals dissolve if left too long. Because I mix it with lemonade I’d skip the lemon for simplicity.
The colour was quite a pretty purple naturally but for the dramatic drink I wanted, I did add a single drop of food colouring. Could work in teas, or just with 7 up or sparkling water, but I wanted a funky lemonade!
- 1 cup dried lavender buds
- half cup of fresh lilac
To make the cocktail: Pink lemonade juice, Lavender and Lilac CRE8, with a lemon slice rolled in lavender.
