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.
- 1 Tablespoon Of Dried Lavender Flowers
- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice
- Aardvark Eco-Flex Straws
- 20 Minutes
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.
