Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade

Make a lavender simple syrup- 1 cup sugar,1 cup water, 1/4 lavender flowers.
In sauce pan simmer on stove for about 10 minutes or so let cool then strain.
Its keeps in a jar for about 3 weeks in the fridge.

Take the juice of fresh squeezed lemons (I used about 8 organic)
Then add equal part water to juice.
Then add about 1/2 of your lavender simple syrup.

Lavender is good for :

•Abdominal complaints
•Loss of appetite
Lemons are a good source of vitamin C

This is a great drink it you have a cold and are trying to get some rest!

You can make endless flavored simple syrups to use with the lemons
example:  ginger,violets and pansies.

Happy cooking~
