Summer is in full swing! As July moves into August the temperatures are going to keep rising.
Lemonade is the iconic drink of summer. Who doesn’t have happy memories of sitting on the porch after playing hard all day as a child with a glass of lemonade at your grandma’s house?
Lavender is a wonderful addition to a summer drink because it helps you relax and calm your nervous system. Raw honey adds the right hint of sweetness with that is actually good for your body! If you suffer from seasonal allergies, local raw honey can ease allergy symptoms.
Lavender lemonade with raw honey is the perfect way to kick back any afternoon this summer!
6 cups water
1⁄2 cup lavender flowers (dried or fresh)
1 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 tsp unrefined salt
- In a small saucepot bring the 2 cups of water to a boil. Turn off heat, add honey, and stir until it dissolves.
- Add the lavender to the pot and cover. Let sit for an hour to infuse the flavor.
- After the hour is over, strain the lavender off and place the lavender-infused syrup in the fridge to cool completely.
- Once cool, mix the syrup, lemon juice, and remaining water in a pitcher. Return to the fridge until ready to serve.
