Lavender Lemonade

This is such a refreshing spring time drink. It's best enjoyed outdoors, while the sun is shining and birds are singing. It tastes better that way!


1 Bag of meyer lemons or 6 regular lemons
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 cup water
Palm full of lavender buds
Ice cubes


In a small saucepan add raw sugar and 1 cup of water. Heat on medium-low heat until sugar is completely melted. This is called simply syrup.

Add in the lavender buds and turn the heat to the lowest setting.
Allow the lavender to simmer with the simple syrup for about 2 minutes.

Once the two minutes are up take the lavender simple syrup off the stove. Allow it to cool. Meanwhile cut lemons in half and squeeze juice into a pitcher.

Pour in the cooled lavender simple syrup and stir.

Add ice cubes and some water to your taste.

Serve chilled. Enjoy!
