Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade - ButterYum

Who loves lavender?  I remember not liking it much as a child, but I love it now that I'm an adult.  Not only does it smell wonderful, it tastes great too.  Here, dried lavender buds are steeped in hot water to make a lavender tea which is then combined with water and freshly squeezed lemon juice to make this refreshing lavender lemonade.  

Heat sugar and water.

Add dried lavender and honey (or agave).

Steep and strain.

Squeeze lemons - fresh lemon juice is a must.

This job is much easier if you have an electric juicer.
