Lavender Honeycomb Infused Tequila

This weekend was incredibly productive with just the right balance of projects and relaxation. After grabbing brunch at the Sofitel with my mom, we did our grocery shopping, where I was able to pick up the supplies to start infusing my honeycomb and lavender tequila! My parents have been making this delicious concoction for years, after it first appeared in an issue of Time Out Chicago. The key here is patience - since the making it only takes a few minutes. In 10-11 days, I can drink this on the rocks or mixed into a sweet lil margarita.
  Lavender honeycomb tequila! I drink you in two weeks! TWO WEEKS IN ICE


DIRECTIONS:
In a clean, glass jar add the honeycomb, the zests of one lime and one orange, a handful of desired herbs such as lavender or lemon balm, and a 750 - milliliter bottler or reposado tequila. Leave in a cool dark place for two weeks, shaking occasionally, then strain through a cheesecloth. This honeycomb-tequila liqueur can be chilled and sipped on its own or used for a twist on a margarita by combine 1.5 ounces of silver tequila and 1.5 ounces of honeycomb liqueur with the juice of one lime. Shake, strain, and welcome the summer.
