Lavender Infused Wine
Recently had a wine company looking to flavor a Rose wine with lavender. They were inquiring the best methods on doing this. With a little taste testing and exploration we discovered a beautiful way to add lavender extract that accents both the wine and the lavender. See for yourself with our recipe below.
Lavender Infused Wine
1 bottle of wine
1 tsp lavender extract
Add 1 tsp of lavender extract to a bottle of wine of your choosing, replace cork or cap and lightly shake to combine. When using lavender extract we feel if you leave the bottle to sit for 24 hours the flavors have time to mingle and blend together.
Our favorites have been Riesling, rose, and pinot rose. Because we like our wine to sit and mingle its flavors it isn't as easy to flavor sparkling champagnes and wines as they will lose the sparkle. That has to left for wine companies as they can flavor their batch before adding the carbonation.
We would love to see what you try with lavender extract #norwoodlavenderfarm.

Raspberry Lavender Lemonade Spritzer
1 cup raspberries
1 Tbsp water
1/2 cup Lavender Lemonade
3 cups seltzer water
3 shots Raspberry Vodka (Adult version)
1 shot Lavender Simple Syrup
Lavender Cocktail Pick (garnish)
In a small saucepan add raspberries and 1 Tbsp water. On medium heat bring raspberries to a simmer. Continue a low simmer until raspberries break apart about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and strain off seeds. You can do this by using a back of a spoon to squeeze the raspberry mush to release the juice. Set aside.
In a large glass measuring container add lavender lemonade, stir in seltzer water and cooled raspberry juice. Add vodka and serve in a glass with ice. Garnish with raspberries, lemon and lavender cocktail picks. Cheers!
