Lavender lemonade. . . the tang of lemonade with the surprising mellow flavor of lavender. It actually pairs well. I avoided lavender before; I’ve smelled too many cheap flowery lotions. But after I saw the beautiful bush growing in our garden, I decided to put first impressions behind me and try again. Lavender is such a unique combination–a sturdy, yet graceful bush. Beautiful in simplicity, but with a scent strong enough to keep it from being ignored.
These labels fit around a 9.5 oz. Starbucks frappuccino bottle. To protect it from condensation, I painted a layer of Mod Podge on the back of the label and let it dry completely before I glued it on with more Mod Podge.
Bring sugar and 1 1/2 cups water to boil. Add crushed lavender and remove pot from heat. Let mixture cool and refrigerate for at least an hour. Strain the mixture into a pitcher. Add the lemon juice and the rest of the water (5 cups). Serve over ice.
