Blueberry Lavender Gin Sour⁣⁣

I'm seeing a lot of blueberry-lavender syrup going on lately, and I approve wholeheartedly! This is such an easy and delicious syrup for the season, and it's good with so many different base spirits. 
This lovely cocktail (three ingredients!) couldn't be simpler!⁣⁣

Simmer 1 cup water and a 1/2 cup sugar with 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen) and 1-3 tsp (depending on how intensely floral a syrup you want) dried lavender (or fresh, if you have it). Simmer gently until the berries pop (you can mash them a bit to help the process) and syrup starts to thicken a bit (maybe 10-15 minutes or so?). Cool and strain.⁣
