This Lavender Lemonade is light and refreshing, with a light floral flavor. It is perfect for Spring and Summer celebrations, or just for fun!
Serve this pretty lavender lemonade at brunch, tea parties, baby or wedding showers, or any event you want to feel fancy. It's just so pretty to sip on! It has a subtle lavender flavor. You can make it stronger if you steep your lavender flowers for longer in the recipe below.
1/2 - 3/4 cup of sugar, depending on how sweet you like your lemonade
1/4 cup honey
6 cups of water, divided into 2 and 4 cups
3 tablespoons dried edible lavender flowers (also found in some spice aisles)
juice of 12 lemons, about 2 cups
purple gel food coloring
lemon slices for garnish
Note: This makes about 2 quarts of lemonade. Store covered, in the refrigerator for about a week.
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the sugar and honey until dissolved and remove from heat.
Add in your lavender flowers and let steep for about 1 hour, like tea.
Juice your lemons and set the juice in the fridge to start chilling. Note: This juicer is the fastest, most efficient way to juice your lemons. And it comes in a few cute colors so you can coordinate with your kitchen if you want to.
After your hour has passed, strain your lavender water into a bowl or pitcher and discard the lavender flowers.
In a large pitcher, add your lemon juice, lavender juice, and the other 4 cups of water. To make it more of the typical lavender color, add a few drops of purple food coloring. I added 4 drops to mine to get this soft purple color.
Serve over ice and garnish the glasses with lemon wedges and faux purple flowers if desired.
