Lavender Scented Sangria
You could make your own sangria from scratch, but why would you when there's a bottle that's made from ALL organic fruit juices and tastes fabulous. It's called Eppa and is readily available at H-E-B and other wine retailers. It costs about $11 a bottle and comes in red and white varieties. This delightful recipe will start your party anywhere...
In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil...add culinary lavender buds and stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool completely then strain to remove all buds.
In a pitcher, combine the Eppa Sangria and club soda. Add the cooled, strained lavender water. At this point you can add whatever sliced fruit you like to the mix. Serve over ice.
