Lavender is a hardy and heavenly scented perennial. It is widely used in Provence (France) as a medicinal plant and in many drinks. I love its refreshing scent.
This lavender lemonade is the perfect drink for the beautiful days ahead.
1 tray ice cubes
1/4 cup dried organic lavender
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons of raw honey (for a vegan version: use coconut nectar)
Juice of 9 organic lemons
6 cups cold filtered water
Place ice cubes into a 2 quart BPA-free pitcher
Put the lavender into a bowl and pour the boiling water on it
Steep for 10 minutes
Strain the lavender
Mix the raw honey into the hot lavender water, then pour into the pitcher
Add the lemon juice into the pitcher
Add the cold water in the pitcher and stir
Taste, and adjust the sweetness to your liking
This lemonade also makes a great base for popsicles.
