Lavender Lemonade

  • 1 cup honey

  • 5 cups water

  • 1/4 cup fresh lavender blossoms, crushed

  • 1 cup fresh-squeezed, lemon juice, strained

  • Ice cubes

  • Lavender sprigs for garnish

 

Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to boil in a medium pan. Remove from heat and add honey, stirring to dissolve. Add the lavender to the honey water, cover, and let steep at least 20 minutes or up to several hours, to taste. You can put the lavender into a tea infuser for easier clean up. Strain mixture and discard lavender. Pour infusion into a glass pitcher. Add lemon juice and approximately another 2 1/2 cups of cold water, to taste. Stir well. Refrigerate until ready to use, or pour into tall glasses half-filled with ice. Garnish with lavender sprigs.
