Lavender Lemonade

I got this lavender lemonade recipe from Lauren Conrad's Website and I must say it's a keeper! This drink is refreshing and tasty perfect for a summer day! 

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 3 Tbsp. dried lavender (for culinary use)
  • ice cube tray
1. First, boil enough water to fill an ice cube tray. Boiling the     water makes your ice cubes turn out clear, so that you will     be able to see what’s inside of them. This is one of my           favorite kitchen tricks.
2. Let water cool, then fill tray half way. Freeze. Once frozen,     place sprigs of dried lavender in each cube and fill to the       top with water (using mint leaves works well, too). Freeze     until all cubes are completely frozen.
3. In a medium pot, combine 2 ½ cups of water with sugar         and dried lavender. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and             simmer 5 minutes. Cover, and let stand one hour.
4. Strain out the lavender by pouring your mixture through a     strainer into a large jug. Add lemon juice and additional         water. Stir your mixture.
5. Refrigerate until cold, and serve with lavender ice cubes.
