Lavender Lemonade

May 1, 2018

Lavender Lemonade
Makes approximately 2 quarts

2 cups room-temperature water
1 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup dried culinary-grade lavender buds
1 ½ cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 to 5 cups cold water

In a medium saucepan, combine the room-temperature water and sugar over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, to dissolve the sugar. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lavender. Let steep for 30 minutes.

Set a fine mesh sieve over a medium bowl. Pour the lavender syrup into the bowl. Discard the lavender.

Pour the syrup into a pitcher. Add the lemon juice and cold water and stir to fully combine.

Serve over ice.

    Sounds delicious and refreshing for a hot day. However, I do like hot lemon drinks in the winter also, so may try it as a warm up drink next fall. I wonder if it can be frozen in individual portions?

    I am going to see if Dean and Delucca have the lavender. Our store will be closing soon, so I will enjoy going over to look for the ingredients to the Lavender Lemonade.

    Where do you find culinary lavender? I would think this would be a good drink for cleansing & soothing to you also.

    I love all of the books you write, but unfortunately I can’t always get your new books. I will be 74 on 1 August. My only wish is to win your contest and the books you have mentioned. Either that or social security is increased and then msybe I could buy my own. I will pray to win and most definitely I will pray for you and yours. GODS BLESSINGS ARE ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. Thankyou

    I almost bought Lavender seeds to plant yesterday. Yet, they needed a much more sunny place to be planted than the area I had in mind for planting. The flowers I planted are not for consumption by humans, but hopefully, they’ll smell nice. I do enjoy lemonade at any time of the year.
