sealable bottle or jar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup fresh lilac flowers (washed and separated from stems)
- 3-4 drops purple food coloring (or red and blue)
Place all of the ingredients except the food coloring in a small saucepan on the stove. On medium-high heat, bring to a boil while stirring constantly.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to steep as it cools completely (at least 2-3 hours). Strain the flowers from the liquid into a sealable jar or bottle. Add the food coloring, seal the container and shake to combine. The syrup will last in the fridge in a sealed container for 3-4 weeks.
