As citrus season winds down I couldn’t help but share one more refreshing idea. As the days pass the once 18lb bags of oranges stacked ready to be swooped up are replaced with single citrus by the dollar. Citrus season is one of my favorite seasons, but with the end of one season another quickly blesses us. A simple syrup is infused with lavender buds, allow to cool and swirl in fresh orange juice for a colorful glass of citrus shine! Enjoy!
