Now that the weather is warming up here in Virginia I’m pulling out my tried-and-true lemonade recipe. If you want to change things up with your standby lemonade recipe, I’d like to suggest an herb to complement the lemon flavor and relax you. Of course, I’m talking about lavender! The first thing you need to do is steep the flavor of the lavender into a bowl by pouring 2 cups of boiling water over about 1/2 cup of lavender. This should set for about 10 minutes before you drain off the lavender and mix the infused liquid with your lemonade.
Only two things could make your tasty creation any better…lots of ice and one of Emerson Creek Pottery’s cool pitchers. This lemonade would be lovely served in our 54 oz. Lavender Iced Tea Pitcher. Save a few extra lavender sprigs and tie them with raffia around an iced tea glass to really create a memorable setting.
