Lovely Lavender Lemonade

It is so warm and sunny today! I’m celebrating by alternating between the hammock and back stoop to write this post! I’m also drinking a new refreshment I made today:

Lovely Lavender Lemonade
1 tablespoon lavender
1 cup sugar
1-2 cups boiling water (depending on how strong you want your syrup)
1 3/4 cups lemon juice
2+ cups ice water
Lemon slices (optional)

To make the lavender syrup, put the lavender and sugar into a heat-tolerant bowl. I massaged my lavender and sugar together to infuse more flavor but you can leave that step out. Next, add your boiling water to the bowl and stir until all the sugar is dissolved.

Cover the bowl for at least 25 minutes (longer if you have patience). After you have waited as long as you possibly can, strain the syrup into a pitcher.

Add the lemon juice, water, and lemon slices to the pitcher and stir!
