For syrup, heat 1 cup granulated sugar with ½ cup water on low until sugar dissolves. Add 1 ounce (½ cup) fresh rosemary. After 5 minutes, add ¼ ounce (½ cup) dried lavender. Heat 3 minutes, remove from heat. Let sit for 5 minutes. Strain and stir in ½ ounce vodka.

Keep refrigerated in a glass jar 4–6 weeks.
