Mother's Day is right around the corner! This year, instead of giving flowers to your mom, why not drink them with her? That's right — if you make this violet simple syrup today, you'll be sipping a purple-hued French 75 come Sunday.

To make the syrup, you'll need to remove the stems from some (unsprayed) violets. After bringing a pot of water to a boil, you take the pot off the heat, add the violets, and let them steep for a full day. Then it's only a matter of incorporating the sugar and a few drops of lemon juice, and you've got the most beautiful simple syrup!

As for how to use the syrup, the author includes a recipe for a French 75, which I highly recommend making. Gin, Champagne, violet simple syrup — what's not to love about that?
