 Liven the setting up with a colorful napkin topped with a Lavender Champagne Cocktail garnished with a fun paper straw. The recipe (borrowed is easy!


Tip: Lavender oil can be substituted for any number of fruits or oils. Our test kitchen has enjoyed making cranberry simple syrup for fall to winter cocktails.


    • 1 cup water
    • 1 cup sugar
    • Lavender essential oil
    • Prosecco


    1. Bring one cup of water to a gentle boil.
    2. Add in one cup of granular sugar, reduce heat, and combine until sugar is dissolved.
    3. Remove from heat and add in 3 drops lavender essential oil.
    4. Transfer still warm liquid to a container for storage in the refrigerator. A glass vessel with a cap (such as a mason jar or a vintage soda bottle) and a funnel make this process easier.
    5. Once cooled, fill about 1/4 of a glass with your lavender simple syrup and then top with a dry sparkling wine, such as La Marca Prosecco.
