Recipe: Lavender Lemonade

This twist on traditional lemonade is a fun way to cool down on warm days. I was surprised at how unique and refreshing this drink truly was. Below you will find the step-by-step instructions on how to make lavender lemonade.

Lavender Lemonade


  • 1 Tablespoon Of Dried Lavender Flowers
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • Water
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Aardvark Eco-Flex Straws


  •  20 Minutes


  •  8


Super simple and delicious! If you remember, I used these fun straws in our last cocktail post. Thanks to the Aardvark company for sending us some free samples so I could dress up my glass of lavender lemonade!

Combine your sugar, dried lavender flowers, and two cups of boiling water in a bowl.

Stir until the sugar dissolves and let the lavender steep for 20 minutes. You can allow it to steep longer if you would like a stronger flavor, but too long can make your lemonade taste like soap!

Use a strainer to remove the lavender flowers from your water mixture.

Add in your lavender syrup, lemon juice, two cups of cold water, and stir. Pour over ice and enjoy!

*You can also use fresh lavender leaves and flower to make this lemonade, however you will need a larger quantity because the dried flowers are much too potent.
