Serves 4



6 cups water divided

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey

3 Tbsp dried lavender

2 cups lemon juice

Lemon slices and lavender petals for garnish

Blue or purple food coloring (optional)



Over medium heat, combine two cups of water and the sugar, bringing to a boil until the sugar is dissolved. Turn off of the heat and stir in the honey and lavender.

Allow the mixture to steep for 2 hours (less if you want a more subtle lavender taste). Strain the liquid, pressing the lavender down to make sure you get all of those juices into your mixture!

In a large pitcher, combine freshly squeezed lemon juice, the lavender mixture and water.

Feel free to add a couple drops of blue or purple food coloring if you want more color than the lavender provides. Serve over ice and enjoy!
