Lavender Lemonade

Lavendar Lemonade

My grandma makes the best lemonade in the whole wide world. I'm not kidding. It's ah-mazing! You're probably thinking lemonade really isn't that special, so you can't imagine that it would be that much to write home about. But oh it is! I crave it when I'm not visiting them! This lemonade comes darn close to my grandma's. The lavender is a great touch, and it makes this drink so aromatic! It's going to be my new summer drink!

How cute are these retro juice glasses? I got them from a giveaway from Amber Housley! I'm IN LOVE!

I suggest serving this lemonade over ice on a cute tray! Here's the DIY on how to do this tray!

Happy Summer!

A great summer drink!

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 heaping tablespoons dried culinary lavender
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons country time lemonade

In a saucepan, combine 2 cups water and sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Turn off heat. Add lavender and honey. Let steep for 30 minutes. Place a strainer over your lemon juice. Pour lavender syrup through strainer into lemon juice. Push down lavender to make sure you get all of the syrup in the lemon juice. Add 2 cups of water (more or less to your liking) and country time lemonade. 

Serve over ice with a stripey straw!
