Make this lavender lemonade your go-to drink for outdoor parties and scorching hot summer days. The flavor and fragrance of the lavender balances perfectly with the tartness of the lemons.
It’s made with simple syrup, and flavored with dried lavender buds. If you have English lavender growing in your garden, you can use your own dried lavender, otherwise just buy some dried culinary lavender buds.
In terms of time, this lavender lemonade doesn’t take any longer to make than regular lemonade. So, you don’t even need the excuse of a special occasion to make a batch.
If you want your lemonade to have a lavender hue, like mine, just add a few drops of food coloring to the simple syrup or finished lemonade. Otherwise, your lemonade will turn out pale pink.
