Lavender Sour Syrup::
2 cups sugar

Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Bring sugar and 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Reduce heat to low and add lavender. Cover and let steep 15 minutes.
Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a large pitcher. Add lemon juice to taste.
Alternatively, if you want to cheat - they do sell commercially available Lavender Syrups, many of which are used in Cafes & Coffee shops!
