Lavender Lemonade



Note: Lavender simple syrup has to sit overnight


2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon cooking lavender

5 medium lemons, juiced

1 tablespoon lavender honey


Make lavender simple syrup by combining sugar and cooking lavender to 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool overnight in refrigerator. Strain to remove lavender buds. Syrup will be dark in color.


To make lemonade, in a large pitcher, combine 6 ounces of lavender simple syrup with the lemon juice, hone and 16 ounces of water. Pour over ice and garnish with a lavender sprig.


Serve as is or spike with your favorite citrus vodka.
