If life gives you lemons…add lavender and make pink lemonade! This is one of our favorite, summer time recipes to easily infuse lavender into your life.
Ice Cubes Cold Water 2 cup Hot Water 1/4 cup Dried Lavender Leaves OR 2 TBSP of Dried Lavender Flowers (The dried lavender flower buds are much stronger, so you won’t need as much!) 6-10 Lemons 3/4 cup White Sugar (Avoiding white sugar? Try sweetening with Lavender Honey, Agave, or Coconut Sugar instead!)
Fill a pitcher with ice cubes. Place Dried Lavender (leaves or buds (using flowers will turn your lemonade a lovely shade of lavender pink) into a bowl and cover with hot water allowing to steep until desired potency (usually 10 minutes). Strain the lavender. Mix in your sweetener and transfer the hot lavender water into the pitcher of ice cubes. Juice your lemons (a plastic manual juicer works great!) and add the fresh juice to the pitcher. Add your cold water. Sample as you go to get the desired sweetness and lemon flavor you want.
Now get ready to make another batch, because the first one goes quick!
