When it comes to entertaining any time of the year
I am all about simple & easy.
I don’t want to be that crazy woman in the kitchen
scrambling at the last minute to get the appetizers and drinks ready to go
before everyone arrives for a get together.
I want to be more like a girl who is sipping a glass of wine and putting her feet up
for a few minutes while waiting for guests to arrive.
But at the same time I am all about simple and easy –
I am big on beautiful presentation.
And this lavender lemonade does double duty
in the delicious AND pretty departments in big way.
Lavender Lemonade isn’t something new.
There are dozens of recipes out there on google
with twists like adding a splash of vodka or champagne for an adult beverage
or maybe a little rosemary for a different flavor all together.
But today, I am sharing a simple recipe that involves just a few ingredients-
simple rules over here.
Easy Lavender Lemonade
1 gallon water
2 cups sugar
5-6 sprigs of fresh lavender – or you can use a tablespoon dried lavender available at the market
2 cups fresh lemon juice
Mint leaf (optional)
Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a large pot and then remove from heat.
Add lavender sprigs (which can be found at the grocery store) and lemon juice and let it all mingle together while it cools to room temperature.
Strain the mixture & then chill until ready to serve.
Serve with ice and garnish a sprig of lavender
and a mint leaf for pretty presentation.
Seriously simple- and delicious- and amazingly pretty on your summer table.
And something fun?
I also made a video with Wayfair- all about making this recipe.
