Print This Recipe

Don’t we all want to drink something that’s hot pinky-purple?!


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tsp dried culinary lavender
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white rum
2 handfuls fresh mint
1/2 cup lavender simple syrup
2 limes juiced
1/2 cup club soda
2 sprigs mint *to garnish
2 sprigs lavender fresh


  1. Lavender simple syrup: Place the sugar, water, culinary lavender and fresh lavender in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves and bring mixture to a simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes and then remove saucepan from heat. Set aside and allow to cool completely.
  2. Mojito: Place blueberries in a small saucepan with 1 tablespoon of water over a low heat for 10 minutes, or until berries burst and become liquid. Allow to cool, then transfer mixture into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Strain cooled lavender syrup through a fine sieve to remove lavender bits. (Can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks).
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of puree in the bottom of each glass. Add the rum and mint leaves then muddle together with a spoon.
  5. Add ice to the glass, pour over lavender syrup, lime juice and top with soda. Mix with a long spoon and serve with an additional sprig of mint.
