Lavender Lemonade

You’ll Need

  • 3 Tablespoons dried lavender flowers
  • 1 tray of ice cubes
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or less)
  • The juice from 8 lemons
  • 5 cups cold water (you may want to add more to adjust for personal taste)


Directions

  • Place the ice cubes into a pitcher that can hold at least 2 quarts.
  • Put the lavender into a bowl, and pour the boiling water over it. Allow it to steep for approximately ten minutes. Then strain out the lavender and discard.
  • Mix in sugar (it is better to start at the lower end and then if you need more you can always add it) into the lavender mixture and then pour this mixture into the pitcher that contains the ice.
  • Add the lemon juice to the pitcher. Then add the cold water and stir. Taste and adjust the sugar and water to your liking. Enjoy!!
