Lavender Lemonade

Full recipe at the bottom of the page

Boil two cups of water in a small sauce pan. Add in the lavender and hibiscus to the water then immediately turn the burner off. Let the herbs steep in the hot water for 5 minutes. Take a strainer and place it at the top of a large pitcher. Pour the water and herbs into the strainer so the remaining liquid falls into the pitcher. This water will be bright pink because of the hibiscus.

Next, add your sugar, lemon juice and nine cups of cold water. Stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.

Place the pitcher in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

  • 2 tbs dried lavender
  • 1 tbsp dried hibiscus petals
