Since I get an abundance of lavender in my herb garden, this has become by new favorite!! It’s so easy to make and tastes delicious… really brings a calming feeling to my drink too!! :)
I discovered this recipe last summer. We have dry, hot summers, usually above 90 all summer. The last time I made this for my friends as we’re replacing our roof!! It was a hit, so needless to say this is my “go to” recipe for a tasty and refreshing summer drink.
Can I boil everything together in a saucepan instead of adding the boiling water to a bowl?
Hi Cassandra, no, I do not recommend boiling everything together. The result may be rather bitter if you do it that way.
I made this yesterday for a family gathering. I’m not a big lemonade fan myself but I loved it. It was a big hit. I also added a couple mint leaves.
I’m making this lavender lemonade and I was wondering if it can Infuse the sugar, water, lavender overnight before mixing with fresh lemon juice!
Hi Kristen, lavender can be rather strong, so if I were to infuse it in the simple syrup overnight, I might dial back a little on the amount. Let us know how it goes for you!
Just made it and it is fabulous! I loved it and so did my family. Thank you
Just made this and it’s delish. I used half the lavender the recipe called for because I have dried lavender and it is STRONG. I infused it for thirty minutes and followed the rest of the directions exactly. My son found it tart but liked it, the rest of the fam (myself included) found it perfect. Thank you for the recipe! I was searching for that “klss” of lavender flavor. LOVE this!!
I’m so glad you liked it Nene!
We have 2 lemon trees in our backyard and 2 lavender plants, 1 in front and 1 in back. This recipe is my “go to” recipe when it is hot outside….today 103 tomorrow predicted 106…..I highly recommend this particular recipe!!
Very refreshing, and the smell of the Organic fragrant lavender flowers! I used Swerve Confectioners Sugar Replacement and only used 1/3 cup of Meyer fresh lemons (2). Love it!
Love it! I also have a few lavender plants in my yard
This recipe is delicious!
This lemonade is amazing! I always get requests for it. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, as some only care for lavender scented bath products but the majority of people love it so much that I end up making more! Love it!!! Btw, I double the recipe.
I’m delighted you like the lavender lemonade Tiffany!
Great recipe if followed exactly according to the directions. Nice balance of flavors and quite tasty!
Thank you so much. As an herbalist I have been cringing every time the lemon-aid with lavender essential oil recipe gets shared. I am so excited to share this much much better option!
I bought a pound of fried culinary lavender because my family and I were always drinking london fogs and buying them from starbucks so much wasn’t the healthiest or best on our bank account. I’ve been wondering what to use it for besides the tea and found this recipe. I love it!
My 9 year old and I picked lemons and lavender from our garden and made this today. It was so good that we’re making a second batch!
So I just finished making this and it’s heavenly!! I didn’t realize squeezing lemons would be so therapeutic haha, this recipe will definitely be saved and passed around to everyone, thank you!
Can I just use lavender leaves if my plant doesn’t have flowers yet? The leaves are quite fragrant…..
Hi, Christine! Emma here, managing editor. Sure, give it a try! Let us know how it works out!
