• Pour the tequila into a 2-liter container. Add the dried lavender flowers. Stir to combine. Let sit, covered, 4 to 6 hours.
• Using a funnel and fine-mesh strainer, strain the tequila back into its original bottle. Using a bar spoon, press the lavender to squeeze out any remaining tequila. Discard the lavender. Cap the bottle and store indefinitely in liquor
