Lavender Mojitos
Girl and the Fig

9 ounces light rum
3 ounces Lavender-Rose Water simple syrup
Juice of 6 limes
1/2 bunch fresh mint leaves
Splash of soda water
Lavender sugar (to rim glass)
Lime wedges for garnish

Place mint leaves, fresh lime juice and lavendar-rose water syrup in a pitcher and muddle well so that the leaves are curshed and the mint oil releases into the liquid. Add the rum and stir together well. In a tall glass, rub the rim with a lime and then the lavender sugar. Fill the glass with ice, pour the rum mixture into the glass and top off with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a wedge of lime.

Lavender/Rose Water Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon English Lavendar
1/2 ounce rose water

In a small pot, combine water and sugar and boil until sugar dissolves. Turn off heat and add lavender and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain to remove lavender leaves. Add the rose water and let cool.

Lavender Sugar

1/2 cup superfine sugar
1/4 cup English lavender

Place lavender and sugar in a coffee grinder and grind to a fine dust.
