Honey Lavender Lemonade
Honey Lavender Lemonade is sweet, but not too sweet, lemonade with a touch of honey and light floral notes from lavender.
- 3/4 cup super fine sugar
- 1 heaping tablespoon culinary dried lavender
- 6 to 8 lemon peels from 1 large lemon
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed and strained of pulp and seeds
- 6 to 8 cups water
- fresh lemon slices for serving
In a saucepan, add sugar, lavender, lemon peels and 1 cup water, stir and heat on medium until the sugar has dissolved.
Once the sugar has dissolved completely, turn off the heat and let it steep for 15 to 20 minutes (or longer for a more potent simple syrup).
Strain through a mesh strainer into a bowl, whisk in honey and let cool completely before using.
In a large pitcher, add the lemon juice, simple syrup and water. Stir and pour over ice, garnishing with fresh lemon slices.
