Lavender Blossom Lemonade

Lavender Blossom Lemonade
The lavender comes through nicely in this recipe. The secret to getting the purple color might surprise you.

Submitted by: Geoff from Chicago, IL
Yield: 6 - 8oz cups

Ingredients

Preparation Instructions:

1. Bring two cups of water to a bowl. Whisk in sugar until dissolved. Remove from heat, stir in lavender, add a few berries, and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.

2. Strain lavender-sugar water and let it cool in the refrigerator. You can speed this up by using a shallow pan for more surface area.

3. In a pitcher, combine lavender sugar water, lemon juice, and 4 more cups of cold water.

4. Serve over ice with a lemon wedge garnish and a pinch of lavender buds if desired.

Helpful Hints

The lavender buds are actually underwhelming in terms of color. If you wish to serve a purple drink, add a few purple berries to your simmering lavender buds. Blackberries, mulberries, and blueberries all work. They also add a nice flavor.
