Preparation

1. Place an open bottle of vodka in freezer for at least 2 hours or until very cold and syrup-like. Chill 10 to 12 tall glasses, if desired.

2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine water, sugar, and lavender buds. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cool rapidly by placing pan in a basin of iced water. Add lemon juice to cooled syrup. Strain to remove lavender; discard lavender.

3. Fill each chilled tall glass with ice and add 1 shot (3 tablespoons) of the cold vodka. Fill each glass about three-fourths full with lemonade syrup. Add lavender sprigs and lemon slices, if desired, and a few berries to each glass. Top each with sparkling wine. Stir the vodka drink to mix or leave as is to sip the layers. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
