Hostess Perfection :: Lavender 'Champagne'

:: Lavender 'Champagne' ::
--or as we know....really...Lavender Sparkling Wine if it's from the States--
Serves 16
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon dried lavender
4 bottles (750 mL) dry Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled
Fresh lavender sprigs, for garnish
Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in dried lavender. Remove from heat. Let cool completely. Strain out lavender. Refrigerate syrup until ready to serve (up to 1 month).
Pour about 6 ounces Champagne and 1 1/2 teaspoons syrup into each flute. Garnish each with a lavender sprig.
I shared this recipe with Rachel the other day as a comment to one of her fun postings and thought that I would share it with everyone over here!! This is going to be the perfect drink to make for a girls night, paired with some cheese and crackers (what else??). If you have some delicious appetizer recipes please share, I would love to expand my repertoire!!!
