Best time to pick lavender is when a third of the flower has opened and third about to open and a third still unopened.
Always use Culinary lavender like Lavandula angustifolia (sometimes sold as L. officinalis or L. vera), Hidcote or L. intermedia. Never use a decorative lavender as they taste very bitter.
1.Place lavender in a clean jar. Using a wooden spoon, lightly crush lavender flowers against the side of the jar after adding vodka.
2.Cover jar tightly with a non metallic lid (or cover jar with plastic wrap and tightly seal with a metal lid). Let stand in the fridge for 1 to 2 weeks.
3.Pour vodka through a fine mesh sieve to remove all solids. Pour infused vodka in a bottle and store in the fridge for up to two months
