Lavender Lemonade

Sometimes I add a splash of Monin Lavender Syrup to my drinks to give them a deeper lavender hue–just for fun!

makes one half gallon

      lavender syrup:

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons dried culinary lavender

    For Lemonade:

  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup lavender syrup
  • ice, fresh lavender sprigs, mint sprigs

Combine the water and sugar and dried lavender in a small saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and stir to dissolve sugar.  Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 30 minutes-1 hour.  Strain out the lavender and chill syrup until ready to use. 

For the lemonade, combine lemon juice, 4 cups of water, and lavender syrup.  Serve over ice with fresh lavender sprig and a mint sprig, if desired.  Adjust lemon and sugar levels to your taste.  Add a splash of Gin for a refreshing cocktail.
