Lavender Mint Tea Punch

Lavender Mint Tea Punch

6 teaspoons dried mint
6 cups boiling water
1 tablespoon dried lavender blossoms
1 liter ginger ale
1 cup purple grape juice
ice cubes with fresh mint leaf frozen in each

Brew the mint in the water in a teapot for ten minutes. Add the lavender blossoms to the pot. Allow tea to cool. Strain the tea and add the ginger ale, grape juice and ice cubes. If serving in a punch bowl, float lavender buds and mint sprigs on top.

That sounds w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l!
I have mint and lavendar growing in my garden and hadn't thought of mixing the two. This will be perfect for our hot, muggy days we've been having lately!!!
