In the summer it’s easy to want something cool and refreshing to drink. I always think about sitting on a big front porch in a rocking chair sipping on lemonade after a long day of hard work. Lavender lemonade-what a refreshing treat.
I love to add a little sprig of lavender for color but it is amazing that I don’t really even need it if I don’t have it, say in the winter months, because of using strong and potent, pure essential oil that can be ingested. The tart lemon and the hint of sweetness from the sugar along with the calming flavor of lavender becomes a power packed combination. You’ll be the favorite belle at the ball if you bring this recipe to the next family or neighborhood get together.
