Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons dry lavender
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 large lemons, juiced
  • 1 cup ice (optional)

Directions

  1. Place the water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the lavender and reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in honey. (It’s as though you’re making tea.)
  2. Cool the lavender mixture in the refrigerator for 2 hours to bring out deeper lavender flavors. Strain the liquid into a pitcher and discard the lavender. Add the lemon juice and stir to combine.
  3. Pour lemonade into four glasses and serve with ice, if desired.
  4. Store in refrigerator for a few days but best enjoyed fresh and chilled.
