Pink Lavender Lemonade

One thing I love about summer is the abundance of flowers growing in the yard. However, there is only one that I can not do without… Lavender. It grows so beautifully here in the Pacific Northwest and spreads all through my yard filling it with lovely purple shades and heavenly scents. So, of course, I must try and use it for cooking and crafts… introducing Pink Lavender Lemonade made with fresh picked lavender from the yard!

Are you kidding??? It doesn’t get much easier than that and you will L.O.V.E. it!

 

Now I did mention, if you love using essential oils, you can go ahead and add a few drops of lavender oil into your mix… or even a bit of lemon oil. Get creative! This recipe lends itself to many adaptions in the future. (ahem…. I’m thinking a bit of vodka, blueberries, and mint!)

I’d love to hear what YOU are going to do with this recipe. Leave me a comment below!!!!
