Brilliant blue/purple simple syrup made with violets from my own property. No pesticides are ever used on the lawn. This is a fun way to flash up a cocktail or seltzer. The drink photo shows the syrup in seltzer poured over ice cubes with Johnny Jump-ups frozen into them.
Syrup is not canned for long-term storage. Refrigerate after opening and enjoy a lovely drink while celebrating Spring!
Ingredients: granulated sugar, water, violets, lemon juice.
NOTE: the use of this syrup is mostly for the fun of the color and doesn’t impart much smell or taste beyond the sugar itself. This is a very limited-time offering as the violets are almost past!
