It’s like, getting hot out. So I thought I needed a cold drink or something. Ever since I bought these lavender florets, I have been thinking of ways to infuse it into everything. I even have a tiny sachet of lavender that I keep in my dresser and furiously rub all over whatever shirt I’m about to put on. So I took a chance with this recipe, and I really liked it. Lavender has a strong floral aroma but the amount used in this recipe only gives off a subtle, romantic flavour, with just enough honey to cradle the citrus. All righty?
And I want to thank all of you for reading my recipes, because without this blog I would be playing way too much Sims 4.
LET THE BEAT DROP.
*I cut this recipe in half to make about 4 servings (small glasses). If you’d like a full pitcher, simply double each measurement.
- 1/2 tablespoon dried lavender florets
- 1/2 cup honey (or white sugar)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3 medium sized lemons, plus more for slicing if desired)
- 1 cup cold water
First, crush the lavender buds with the back of a spoon to release their aroma.
Mix together honey and boiled water, stirring to dissolve.
Add lavender to honey water.
Stir it up stir it up, (that’s how we ball out). Cover with plastic wrap and “infuse” for 30 minutes (or longer if you want it strong).
Squeeze those lemons. If you don’t have a citrus reameror juicer, I’m really sorry.
Strain the lavender-honey infusion into a pitcher (or giant mason jar) and add lemon juice. Add more honey if needed.
