    This is a wonderfully refreshing and soothing drink, to be enjoyed any time of the year. I find it delicious served over crushed ice, with an additional lemon slice.

    Very pronounced lavender flavor with a pretty pink color!! My kitchen smelled like aromatherapy during and afterwards! I used dried organic culinary lavender (which I ordered over the internet). It seemed that the lavender flavor was even more pronounced the following day. To make 1 cup of lemon juice I used about 7 lemons.  -  04 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is way too much sugar. I had to fill the rest of the 2 qt pitcher up to dilute it and it's still way too sugary. Great concept, though. I used lavender leaves instead of flowers and 1/4 cup reconstituted lemon juice since I had no fresh on hand. Next time, I think I'll cut the sugar in half, add a little more lemon juice, and enough water to fill a 2 qt pitcher.  -  29 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
