¼ cup dried lavender (or 2 Tbsp of fresh lavender flowers)
2 cups boiling water
¾ cup white sugar
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.
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.
