Something we love to make this Spring season is homemade Lilac Syrup. Did you know that when the Lilacs are in bloom, they are signalling to us that the warmer months have officially arrived?

All you need for this recipe is...

- 4 cups of fresh Lilac blooms

- 2 cups of sugar

- 2 cups of water

Start by separating each little floret off each cluster of blooms. This takes a bit of patience, but trust us, it's worth it!

Once the florets are prepared, rinse them with cold water in colander.

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water over medium heat. Bring to a boil while stirring until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Add the lilac florets, stir gently, and cover. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat, keep it covered, and wait. As it cools and rests, the lilacs will add their sweet flavour to the syrup. The time it takes to steep will depend on the variety of lilacs and how intense you want the flavour. Since it is a delicate flower, it will take 3 to 8 hours to fully infuse.

Pour the syrup into a fine-mesh strainer resting on a large bowl. Allow it to sit for a few minutes and shake it occasionally so more of the syrup filters through the flowers and drips into the bowl.

After straining, pour the finished lilac syrup into a glass container with a tight-sealing lid. Store it in the refrigerator, where it should keep for a week or two.

Our favourite way to enjoy this syrup is in a lemonade or citrus forward cocktail!
