Then someone mentioned to me that you could make simple syrup from lilacs, and make cocktails from it! What what?! So for the weekly Thirsty Thursday that we hosted, I got all excited for syrup! A quick Google search led my to Punk Domestics’ (love them) syrup page, which led me to Dabblings and Whimsey’s Lilac Martini page! (And for the record, I’m bummed I didn’t find Local Kitchen’s Forsythia Syrup until after that season.) I did, however, cook up this batch of Lilac Syrup….drinks to follow!!
