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