    This is a fabulous summer drink! Lavender soothes and refreshes on a hot day, and the scent brings back fond summer memories. I can't seem to make enough of it for my family.

    • 12 ice cubes
    • 4 tablespoons dried lavender
    • 500ml boiling water
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 8 lemons
    • 1.25L cold water, or as needed

    1. Place the lavender into a bowl, and pour boiling water over it. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes, then sieve out the lavender and discard. Mix the sugar into the hot lavender water until dissolved, then pour into a 2 litre pitcher with the ice.
    2. Squeeze the juice from the lemons into the pitcher, getting as much juice as you can. Top off the pitcher with cold water, and stir. Taste, and adjust lemon juice or sugar if desired. Pour into tall glasses, sit in the garden with a good book, and relax!

    To the people who are having trouble with this tasting to much like perfume: You may be using dried Lavender Flowers instead of dried lavender leaves. If you use the flowers you should only use about a tablespoon or two. The leaves are not as strong so a 1/4 cup is necessary.  -  03 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is delightful! A couple of notes: If you are using lavender flowers you may want to decrease the amount to 2 Tbsp instead of 1/4 cup, otherwise it could taste a little strong. When you make the lavender tea at first, it will be a brownish color... but the instant you add lemon juice, it transforms into a lovely pink. Fun! Sometimes I make a concentrate of the sugar/lavender/lemon and then mix it with ginger ale for a sparkling lavender lemonade. Excellent for bridal showers, Mother's Day luncheons, etc.  -  05 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I actually brew the "lavender tea", let it cool and then use it to make with Lemonade Crystal Light. It is nice and refreshing and sugar-free!  -  29 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
