I made this particular batch of lavender lemonade when I was coming up with labels for Avery. I confess, though, that what’s in the picture was rather light on the lavender, since I made it at two in the morning and had run out of lavender buds. So when you make yours, you may discover it looks more, well . . . lavender.

Lavender Lemonade

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lavender buds
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • cold water and ice

1. In a small saucepan, bring water, sugar, and lavender to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Allow to cool. Strain the lavender liquid into a pitcher.

2. Add in lemon juice with ice, and about 4 cups of water. Taste for strength.
