|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
1 c. water
1 (3 inch) cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp. whole coves
3 tbsp. fresh lavender flowers or 1 tbsp. dried lavender
1 (6 oz.) can frozen limeade concentrate
2 c. bottle purple grape juice
1 lime, sliced
Ribbon tied bouquet of lavender flowers; optional
1 liter bottle seltzer or ginger ale, chilled
In covered 1 quart saucepan, heat water, cinnamon, and cloves to boiling. Simmer over low heat 5 minutes; remove from heat. Add lavender flowers. Cover and let stand 10 minutes to steep. Strain the brew into a bowl and discard the particles. Stir frozen limeade concentrate into the brew until melted and add grape juice. Cover and refrigerate.
Just before serving, pour into large pitcher. Add lime slices and ice. Tie bouquet of lavender flowers to handle of pitcher, if desired. Fill pitcher with seltzer and serve immediately. Very unusual. Always a hit!
