Mix hot water and dried lavender blossoms in bowl. Let steep 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/4 cup honey. Strain into another bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the honey syrup, gin, and lemon juice; strain into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into 2 chilled Martini glasses.
For Bee’s Knees Lavender Lemonade, add equal parts honey lavender syrup to gin in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake well and strain into a glass over ice, fill glass with lemonade.
You can make up a batch of honey syrup and store in a jar in the refrigerator up to a week. Once you add water to honey, it will start to ferment. If it sits longer than that, you’re making mead :)
