Yield: 4 cups
Lavender Mint Lemonade
Total Time:
1 hr
 
Ingredients
lavender syrup
  • cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • teaspoons dried culinary lavender
  • 2 sprigs fresh lavender
lemonade
  • cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 3/4  cups water
  • 1 cup lavender syrup
  • 1 big handful of fresh mint
  • lemon slices for garnish
  • fresh lavender sprigs for garnish
Instructions
lavender syrup
  1. Place the sugar, water and lavender in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until the sugar dissolves, bringing the mixture to a simmer. Cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and set the saucepan aside. Let it cool completely. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove the lavender. Store in a sealed container in the fridge! I like to make this a day or two before and even let the lavender sit in it in the fridge for a day before straining, but it’s not necessary.
lemonade
  1. In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, water and simple syrup. Stir well. Taste and adjust the flavor to your like more – if it needs a little more sweetened, add it! More lemon juice or water? Go ahead. I love the ratio above, but it also depends on the sourness of your lemons. Throw a handful of fresh mint leaves into the pitcher and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
  2. To serve, pour into chilled glasses and garnish with a lemon slice, lavender sprig and mint leaf. Enjoy!
