Maple Lavender Frozen Yogurt

As it turns out, rich maple syrup and floral lavender play oh so nicely together. I also added bourbon, both for flavor and its anti-freezing capabilities. When using a low-fat yogurt, the alcohol keeps it from becoming a block of ice after a few hours in the chill chest.
