This gorgeous, refreshing treat is perfect for backyard summer BBQs or fancy dinner parties.


  • 2 cups water (to boil for infusion)
  • 1/2 cup Lavender Vanilla Bean Sugar
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Lavender
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups ice-cold water
  • Ice for serving
  • Thin lemon slices for garnish


Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add both sugars and dried lavender and stir until sugars are dissolved. Remove from heat and let steep for 5 to 15 min. depending on how strong you want the lavender flavor to be. Strain the infused simple syrup into a serving pitcher. Stir in lemon juice and additional 2 cups ice-cold water. Taste and adjust for tartness; add more lemon juice if too sweet, or more sugar if too tart. Add ice and serve. Garnish with lemon slices.

Easy and delicious. We put this (well-chilled) in mason jars and went on a hike. The lavender lemonade was a tasty, refreshing pick-me-up.
