Beg, Borrow, or Steal some lilacs to make this delicious lilac simple syrup. Too easy to make and too good to pass up. Take about 4 Cups of lilac florets ( about 8-9 blooms). Remove all green parts as they will cause bitterness. This by the way is not a bad job as the scent of the lilacs will surround you. Rinse florers thoroughly. Heat 2 Cups water and dissolve 2 Cups sugar into it. Heat mixture on low heat and add lilac florets into water. Keep on low heat for 30-60 minutes. Turn off heat and let florets steep for about 8 hours. Strain mixture and refrigerate. Great for adult cocktails or add to lemonade or tonic water for a beautiful refreshing spring dtink. Enjoy!
