What’s more refreshing than a glass of lemonade? How about a glass of Lavender Mint Lemonade. Especially on a warm Spring afternoon. However, instead of a
tall glass, I went rogue and pulled out my cut little martini glass. Who say’s you can’t drink lemonade out of a martini glass?! Ummm . . . no one.
Because I was experimenting and wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out, I only made a recipe for about two glasses. Increase your measurements for a larger serving.
- 1 cup water (Filtered)
- 1/4 cup sugar (Wholesome Organic Cane Sugar)
- 1/4 cup agave (Wholesome Organic Blue Agave)
- 1/2 TBSP dried lavender
- 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 additional cups of water (Filtered)
- Fresh mint
- In a pitcher add the 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Mix well and then place into fridge to chill, while preparing the simple syrup lavender mix.
- In small pot (a large pot if you’re making more) add the 1 cup of water plus the 1/4 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring consistently until sugar has dissolved. Set aside (removing from heat); then add the agave and lavender; mix well. Place lid of pot and return back to the stove on low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Strain lavender mix.
- Take the lemonade mix out the fridge, add the strained lavender mix to the lemonade and mix well. Place your lemonade back in the fridge to chill a little longer, serve as is or add a few ice cubes.
Note: If you’d like to give your lemonade the purple color, you can add a drop of blue, purple, or red and blue mixed together – food color. This is totally optional. I added a red and blue mixture for picture purposes (see below) but the lemonade that I actually drank, I didn’t add any food color.
Also, just incase it’s the weekend and you’re looking for an amazing alcoholic beverage – add a splash or two of Casamigos Tequila. I made a special one just for my daughter.
Add a fresh mint sprig, and lemon slices for garnish. Enjoy!
