Looking for something cute and yummy on a hot day. Make this Lavender Lemonade ahead of time. I am sure you will love it.
There are a few ingredients you will need to make this, especially the lavender which is the most important ingredient here.
- 6 cups water divided
- 1/2 cup sugar or sugar replacement
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 Tbsp dried lavender
- 2 cups lemon juice
Lemon slices and lavender petals for garnish.
Blue or purple food coloring optional.
Over medium heat, combine two cups of water and sugar, bringing to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Turn off of the heat and stir in honey and lavender.
Allow mixture to steep for 2 hours (less if you want less of a lavender taste). Strain the liquid, pressing the lavender down to make sure you get all of those juices into your mixture!
In a large pitcher, combine freshly squeezed lemon juice, lavender mixture and water. Feel free to add a couple drops of blue or purple food coloring if you want more color than the lavender provides. Makes the lemonade especially cute for those brunches! Serve over ice.
