Hi Everyone, as we head into the warmer weather of summer, I implore you to give this Lavender Lemonade a try! In this recipe, I use my Lavender Simple Syrup which gives the most subtle lavender essence.
I can just imagine it being served at all those Summer holidays, gatherings, BBQs – you name it. You know what? Just make it for yourself, you deserve it!
You can use food grade edible lavender flowers to make the simple syrup and to use as a garnish for the top. You can find them on Amazon here unless of course, you grow it. We grow lavender at our house and it will be blooming in June, the sprigs you see in these photos are the baby flower buds.
I love the color of this lemonade, it’s almost the color of lemon curd, like a more opaque yellow which I think is due to the type of lemons but also the purple-grey color from the Lavender Simple Syrup.
You could even blend this up as a Lavender Lemon Slushie which would be great for those hot days coming up.
Ingredients for Lavender Lemonade
- 1 tablespoon dried food grade lavender flowers or 3 tablespoons fresh (just the flowers not the stem)

You can control the strength of the lavender simple syrup when it’s infused in the water; I recommend 10 minutes.
