My friend, Ginger, asked me to share my recipe for this refreshing summertime beverage. Not being one to disappoint my friends, here ya go!
6 cups water
1/2 cup evaporated cane crystals
1/4 cup culinary lavender buds
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from 5 or 6 large lemons
Lemon slices and lavender sprigs for garnish
Combine 2 cups water with lavender and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for 10 minutes.
Strain the lavender water into a serving pitcher, add the rest of the water and lemon juice and stir well. Refrigerate until chilled and garnish with lemon slices and lavender sprigs.
