Process:
  1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, water, smashed blueberries, and pinch of salt over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.

  2. Once the mixture comes to a gentle boil, remove it from the heat. Add the juice of half a lemon while stirring. Observe as the color brightens and turns vibrant.

  3. Let the mixture cool to lukewarm.

  4. Add the lilac blossoms to the lukewarm syrup and stir gently to combine.

  5. Cover the saucepan and let the mixture sit at room temperature overnight to allow the lilac flavor to infuse into the syrup.

  6. The next day, strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove the lilac blossoms and blueberry residue, pressing gently to extract all the flavor.

  7. Transfer the infused syrup into a clean, airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
