There are many ways to make this recipe using dried lavender leaves/flowers, lavender oil, or fresh leaves/flowers (or a combination of all three!). This recipe just deals with the basics. Lemons, fresh lavender, water, and your favorite sweetener - and that's it! (Oh, maybe some ice, too!).
This recipe is the perfect non-alcoholic drink to mix up to appease your friends at any occasion (think summer BBQ, baby shower, kids birthday party, or housewarming party!) or as I said above, you can easily make it more adult-like. Got a lemon tree? Even better. Pick some ripe lemon, cut a few leaves and stem of lavender, and head insider to concoct your masterpiece. Squeeze, steep, shake, slurp - ahhhh... summer's nectar.
