This lavender lemonade is a delicious spin on a classic drink! Lavender is oh so relaxing and pairs perfectly with tart lemons.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 5 cups of water (1 cup for the simple syrup + 4 cups for the lemonade)
  • 2 tbsp. of culinary lavender
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • Plus: springs of fresh lavender or slices of lemon to garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by making a lavender simple syrup. In a stock pot, add 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water.
  2. Bring the mixture heat to high, then reduce to a simmer once hot. Stir occasionally. Continue to simmer for around 5 minutes.
  3. Once your sugar mixture is reduced, add 2 tbsp culinary lavender. Continue to heat until all the sugar is melted, stirring occasionally. This step should take around 3-5 minutes.
  4. Allow your lavender simple syrup to cool to room temperature. For a lighter lavender flavor, remove the lavender when you remove the mixture from the heat. For a stronger lavender flavor, keep the lavender in the simple syrup as it cools. You can taste it as it cools, to ensure it has the amount of lavender flavor that you like!
  5. Add 4 cups of cold water and 1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice. Stir to mix thoroughly.
  6. Add 2 cups of ice and garnish with a sprig of lavender and/or lemon slices.
  7. Serve in a tall glass with ice and store in the fridge for up to a week.
