For my 50th birthday I hosted a happy tea party, which is a tea party with cocktails of course! I had my very best girlfriends over to celebrate this milestone with me. Everything was decorated in a pink French theme. Tasty tea treats were served (recipes and photos will come in a future post) by my daughter Cassidy. We toasted with Lavender Champagne (soooooo tasty and refreshing!). Here is the recipe for Lavendar Champage:
For simple syrup: Bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in 1 T. culinary dried lavender. Remove from heat and cool. Refrigerate overnight. Strain lavender.
Add 1 1/2 teaspoons lavender simple syrup to glass of champagne and garnish with fresh lavender sprig.
