Ingredients
  • Lavender Plum:
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 3-4 springs fresh lavender
  • 4 ripe plums, pitted and sliced
  • Vanilla Peach:
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 2 vanilla bean pods
  • 3 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced
Instructions
  1. Have a large, non-reactive bowl ready. Wash lavender carefully and pat dry with a paper towel. Heat vinegar in a medium-sized non-reactive pot over low heat. Without allowing the vinegar to boil, heat until it is just about to simmer and then remove from heat.
  2. Place your flavoring agents (fruit and spices) in the prepped, non-reactive bowl and pour in the warmed vinegar. Give the mixture a stir to combine the flavors and set aside to cool. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks - the longer the mixture sits, the stronger the flavors. Every few days, give the mix a stir to blend the flavors.
  3. Serve chilled with a carbonator of your choice (seltzer, tonic water, club soda, etc) to taste.
