Lavender Mint Lemonade

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.

Ingredients:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove from heat. Strain lavender mix.
  4. 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!
