It’s time for my favorite spring drink.
I learned about this delightful recipe at an elementary school potluck.
Lilac water is a crowd pleaser, and for good reason.
It’s fragrant and tastes like liquid heaven.
When smelled or ingested, lilac produces a calming effect that eases anxiety.
If you’re prone to spring pollen allergies, it’s best to avoid drinking it.
How to make lilac water:
Simply pick three flower clusters from the lilac bush and place them into a two quart mason jar and fill with water.
Let steep five hours.
Pour the lilac water into a glass and enjoy.
It’s that easy.
Give it a try.
It gives a beautiful aroma to a room, looks cheerful and tastes dreamy.
Lilacs can be used a second time; simply refill the jar with water and let steep another five hours.
