Expert Tips

Look for edible flowers such as nasturtiums, pansies and violets in the produce department of the grocery store. Edible flowers have not been treated with chemicals so they're safe to eat.

Cover and refrigerate any remaining Simple Syrup for up to 1 week.

If you prefer to measure alcohol in ounces, 2 tablespoons equals 1 oz.
