Servings: 8

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles dry rosé
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 5 fresh lavender sprigs
  • 10 diced strawberries
  • 10 quartered orange wheels
  • 1/2 cup lavender simple syrup
    • 1 cup sugar (may not use all of it)
    • 1 cup water

Step 1: To make the lavender simple syrup, bring one cup water to a boil with the lavender sprigs. Remove from heat and strain the liquid into a glass measuring cup. Note how much liquid is in the measuring cup and add an equal amount of sugar to the mix (for example, if you have 1/2 cup of liquid after straining, you should add 1/2 cup of sugar).

Step 2: Combine the rosé, Grand Marnier, orange juice, lemon juice and fruit in a large punch bowl or pitcher. Stir and serve over ice with additional fruit, if left over.
