Make a sugar syrup by boiling together the water sugar and dried lavender.

Close with a lid and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the times up transfer the syrup into a glass and cool in the fridge till ready to use.

Meanwhile, wash the blueberries and tip into a saucepan with 2 tbsp of the sugar syrup and 2 tbsp of water.

Cook on medium heat till the blueberries break down and gets slightly cooked. It doesn’t need to be that pulpy, just break them all down with a wooden spoon.

Cool and strain into a large bowl, diluting it with water if you find the juice is not falling through.

Do a taste test and if you need more sugar add the remaining sugar syrup.

Add ice cubes to the glasses and pour in the drink about half full then top up with the tonic and enjoy
