Flavoring your lemonade with lavender is a delicious and soothing way to enhance summer's most refreshing drink. The actual plant of lavender has many medicinal benefits, including slowing the heart rate and giving a sense of calm and relaxation.
This is a simple recipe with an amazing outcome-- lavender lemonade is guaranteed to stay on your mind long after you finish your glass. Cheers!

Step 1: Gathering Ingredients

All you need to make a pitcher of lavender lemonade:

  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar*
  • 1/4 cup lavender leaves, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup lemon juice

Additionally, you will need a deep saucepan, strainer and pitcher.

*I am currently cutting refined sugars out of my diet, so I will be using the natural sugar substitute, Xylitol, instead of sugar. Feel free to do the same if you're looking for a sugar-free drink.
What does lavender taste like?
It kinda has this astringent taste. I got too curious in my herb garden and decided to eat a flower. :D<br><br>
I love this! Right up my alley! Thanks for sharing. I found this entry on the Z list!
I'm guessing you mean the lavender flower buds?&nbsp; The leaves of the plant would be quite nasty I'd think!&nbsp; Anywho, looks delicious, I'm going to have to give it a try!&nbsp; Thanks!<br />
It looks like the leaves in the picture. I haven't made this yet, but have been looking at other edible recipes that include lavender, and it seems about 50/50 whether they call for the leaves or the flowers.
Sounds delicious! five stars
