To prepare simple syrup: Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in flowers and let cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Strain (discard the flowers) and refrigerate for up to 1 month. (Makes 1-1¼ cups.)
To prepare margarita: Stir tequila, lime juice and 1 ounce of the simple syrup in a tall glass. Add ice. Garnish with lime wedge, if desired.
