lavender lemonade

Found this wonderful recipe (and pretty photo!) for lavender lemonade over at Sunday Suppers and had to share.  How lovely would this be to serve in the summertime at a garden party? *sigh* I am so ready for the warmer weather!

"Mr. Winter, it is over between you and me...I'm with Spring now so you best be on your way".

Lavender Lemonade

 2 cups sugar
 5 sprigs lavender (stems and buds), plus additional for garnish
 2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 10 lemons)
 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 4 limes)

In a large saucepan, bring one gallon of water and the sugar to a boil. Remove from heat; add 7 lavender sprigs and lemon and lime juices. Cool to room temperature, strain, and chill. Serve on ice, with additional lavender for garnish.


  1. I always do a big garden party in the late Spring. I am going to serve this for sure. I have bookmarked this page so when our weather gets warm I can use it. Oh I am looking forward to sunny days and pretty drinks.

  2. Oh soon as the weather is warmer, I am making this for everyone who shows up.. Coming darling???

  3. Oh, so lovely! I love pretty drinks!
    I'm definitely serving this to the ladies of book club...tks!

  4. Well, here's to warmer weather and pretty drinks! Cheers!

    Tomorrow, spring will be officially here whether she likes it or not, and then summer, with it's lovely lavender and warm air...can't wait!
