Drink: Lavender Lemonade

Photo Credit: munchinwithmunchkin.com

I have always been fascinated with fruit and plant/flower drink combinations: strawberry and basil, lime and mint. The last plant I expected to be a part of this craze was lavender. Sure, the light purple colored flower has a pleasant smell and has an aesthetically pleasing color, but would it taste good? Turns out lavender is not only drinkable, but edible as well. Apparently,the flower has the ability to produce nectar, so it can be converted into honey by bees, its leaves can be candied or turned into sugar. Overall, it is a fresh, floral scent that can serve as a natural sweetener that surprisingly has health benefits.

That being said, lemonade is the ultimate summer drink staple, and lavender is a symbol of springtime and as those lazy hazy summer days wind down, what better way to reminisce about the warmer half of the year with a drink that fuses summer and spring together? The end result would be this recipe for lavender lemonade. This sweet, fruity, and fragrant drink is a refreshing beverage to enjoy during the hot final days of summer. Enjoy!
