I am not typically one for food/drink crafting but I posted on FB about all the wild violets on our sweet Vermont property and a friend linked a website with things to do with violets. The syrup immediately appealed to me because it’s clearly fae magic or science but yeah MAGIC.
It was super fun adding lemon juice and watching it turn pink.
I have yet to try it; I’m not big on super sweet drinks. The kid says it tastes vaguely of plant/flower but mostly sugar. He likes it and wants me to continue to make it but mostly because of the magic when added to lemon water. The flavor itself in his opinion is not the deal sealer. That said, other reports online indicate a light floral or grape taste.
