The end of winter and the start of spring hold two special holidays: St. Valentine's Day and Mother's Day (as celebrated in the United States). Flowers are usually front and center during these two special holidays. The later doesn't give way to as many local fresh flowers as Mother's Day might but, no worries, dried flowers to the rescue!
There are so many wonderful things that you can do with dried flowers for Mother's Day and St. Valentines Day (or any time of year) but, why not make an edible bouquet? This isn't any edible bouquet though. Edible in this instance means a drink, but first we need to make a rose and lavender simple syrup. The question is though, how do you make simple syrup?
