Amy’s Lavender Lemonade recipe is a refreshing summer drink that the whole family will enjoy. It has just enough sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth without being too sugary, and it tastes great either hot or cold. To make this lemonade, you’ll need: one cup of sugar, two cups of water, four lemons (or limes), one tablespoon of dried lavender flowers (to taste), and ice cubes.
prep: 15 mins total: 15 mins Servings: 6 Yield: 6 servings
¾ cup white sugar
¼ cup dried lavender
1 tray ice cubes
5 cups cold water, or as needed
2 cups boiling water
Place ice cubes into a 2 quart pitcher. Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then strain out the lavender and discard. Mix the sugar into the hot lavender water, then pour into the pitcher with the ice.
Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can. Top off the pitcher with cold water, and stir. Taste, and adjust lemon juice or sugar if desired. Pour into tall glasses, pull up a lawn chair and a good book, and relax!
