So this is kind of awkward, but I actually picked up these pretty purple glasses over two years ago thinking “these will be PERFECT for a lavender lemonade post”. And though they’ve been well used and loved ever since, there they sat unfulfilling their rightful duty. Until now! Because I finally tried this recipe that I’ve been eyeing forever, and I’m so glad that I did. It basically tastes like summer in liquid format, and that excites me to no end.
2-1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
2-1/2 cups cold water
1 cup lemon juice
1. In a large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil.
2. Remove from the heat; add lavender. Cover and let stand for 1 hour.
3. Strain, discarding lavender.
4. Stir in cold water and lemon juice. Serve over ice.
Yields: 6 servings
