Lilac Infused Water

The essence of spring is something I long, all year round. I made a promise to myself that I would try to preserve spring as very best I can this year. Whether it be through photography, drying flowers, recipes and most of all, experiments.

Lilacs are one of my absolute favorites. Growing up, we had a large lilac bush at our house in Rosemont. My mother would leave a pair of pruning sheers for who ever wanted to take some home on the way past our house. Now,  at my home that my partner and I bought December of 2019, our property came with a few very lovely lilac bushes. TWO colours purple & white!!

I ended up doing a couple different things with the lilac flowers. But let’s start with the most simple, yet lovely “recipe”.

So besides the obvious, I would reccomend giving your lilacs a shake before bringing them inside. The earwigs seem to love hanging out in them. And a good rinse before adding them to your water. Pick your lilacs somewhere that is not near a road/polluted area.

I let my lilac water soak overnight. It is such a subtle, delicate, floral taste.bit is absolutely LOVELY.

1 cup of lilac flowers (no stem)

8 cups of water
(or really however much you want,
it is a very faint flavor so it
will be hard to over do!)

Give a good shake & let sit over night. ♡

Thanks for joining me in today’s post. I hope everyone is staying safe out there and can find some peace with the flowers today ♡
