~Cooking with Flowers and Simple & Sweet Fridays #64~

I bought the new cookbook, 
"Cooking with Flowers"
by Miche Bacher of Mali B Sweets.
All the recipes looked so good.

I had to make the chocolate and lavender biscotti. 
A very easy recipe and they were delicious!
Wrapped them up and gave them to friends.
The next recipe I made was a Borage Spritzer.
Combine 1/2 cup Borage Basil Simple Syrup

1/2 cup Borage Vodka

3 cups Seltzer Water
8 Cucumber Slices
8 Basil Leaves

Borage Ice Cubes

A wonderful refreshing drink for Springtime!

Happy Thursday everyone!
