MAKES ABOUT 1.5 LITRES (6 CUPS)
INFUSE FOR 5 MINUTES TO 2 HOURS IN THE FRIDGE

250 g blackberries
250 g blueberries
6 lavender sprigs (fresh or dried)
1.5 litres (6 cups) water

Wash the blackberries and blueberries, then cut most of them in half. Rub 3 of the lavender sprigs, releasing the flowers. Place the berries, lavender sprigs and flowers, and crushed ice into a carafe. Add the water. Leave to infuse for 5 minutes to 2 hours in the refrigerator, depending on the taste and colour desired – the floral flavour will deepen the longer it is left to infuse.
