Serves: 6 servings
  • 4 cups pitted and halved sweet cherries
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons lavender
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Club soda
  • 6 whole sweet cherries with stems, for garnish
  • 6 small sprigs lavender blossoms, for garnish
  1. Put pitted cherries, water, lavender, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat, whisking occasionally, until the mixture begins to boil. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool completely.
  2. Strain the cherry mixture into a container to remove any solids. Cover and store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  3. For each drink, add 4 ounces crushed ice to a tall 12-ounce cocktail glass. Add 4 ounces of the cherry-lavender mixture and top with club soda. Garnish each drink with one whole cherry with stem and one sprig lavender blossoms.
Alcoholic Version: Shake or stir all of the strained cherry-lavender mixture and some ice with 9 ounces of vodka. Strain it into 8-ounce martini glasses. Top each drink with club soda and garnish with one cherry with stem and one sprig of lavender blossoms.
