Fresh Lavender Lemonade

Fresh Lavender Lemonade

15 ice cubes
¼ cup dried lavender (or 2 Tbsp of fresh lavender flowers)
2 cups boiling water
¾ cup white sugar
8 lemons
5 cups cold water

Place ice cubes into a 2 quart pitcher. Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then strain out the lavender and discard. (I actually save a little as a garnish for my lemon slice on the rim of each glass.....because that's how I roll)
Mix the sugar into the hot lavender water, then pour into the pitcher with the ice.

Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can. Once you squeeze the lemon juice into the pitcher, you will see the pretty pink color appear. Top off the pitcher with cold water, and stir. Give it a taste, and adjust sugar or lemon juice as needed.
