This lavender appetizer is sure to please anyone looking to add the sophistication and elegance to their appetizer plate. These infused wine and lavender blackberries are a treat on top of brie cheese and a elegant lavender lemon curd. Dreamy....delicious and oh so yummy!
Wine & Lavender-Soaked Berries
1/2 cup red wine ( or non alcoholic version would be grape juice)
1 Tbsp Lavender Simple Syrup
1 tsp lemon juice
Lavender Cocktail Picks
Lemon Lavender Curd
1/4 cup Lemon Curd
1/2 tsp Lavender Extract
Thin wafer style crackers
Stir together, red wine, Lavender Simple Syrup and lemon juice into a small bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups of fresh blackberries to your wine mixture. Let the berries soak for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
In a small bowl combine lemon curd and lavender extract, stir until combined.
Brie & Berry Cocktail Bites
To assemble your Lavender Cocktail Picks, smear a little Lemon Lavender Curd onto your cracker, cut your brie cheese into small squares, poke a hole through the cheese with a toothpick. Insert your lavender cocktail into a pre-poked berry and then into cheese square, place on top of cracker and lemon curd. The trick to Lavender Cocktail Picks is to think light. They aren't super strong, so you are looking to add the garnish bling but keeping in mind they are fragile. Make them just before serving.
