Author Notes: The sweet and tart summertime favorite, infused with the rich floral note of lavender. tideandthyme

Serves 6

  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 sprigs fresh lavender
  1. Bring 2 cups water, sugar, and lavender to a boil over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Turn off heat, cover, and let steep 1 hour.
  2. Combine remaining 3 cups water, lemon juice, and lime juice in a pitcher. Place a fine-mesh strainer over the top. Carefully strain the lavender simple syrup into the pitcher, discarding lavender. Stir to combine.
  3. Serve in glasses over ice with lemon slices and a sprig of lavender for garnish. Also great with vodka!

This is delicious. I'd just reduce the sugar--my taste. I prefer it with ice, alone; I tried with food and it didn't work. But it is wonderful by itself. Thanks for sharing it!
