This breathtakingly beautiful lavender lemonade is so easy to make and tastes delicious. I think it’s a tie between this one and rose lemonade as to which one is prettier!
This is a perfect non alcoholic drink to serve on a special occasion, or if you just want to make yourself something special. If making for a crowd, simply increase the servings. It looks so pretty served in a jug.
I must admit, I had to try this a few times to get it right. When my lavender arrived I was so excited to try it that I may have gone a little overboard.
Note to self: lavender is strong. My advice: use it sparingly.
I finished off this mocktail recipe with my lemon ice blocks, which worked perfectly. I have also heard of people freezing lavender inside ice blocks, but as stated above, lavender is strong, so proceed with caution if you try this.
Once I got it right it came up beautifully.
Some advice around sweeteners. I always try to make my mocktail recipes as healthy as possible, so I avoid artificial sweeteners where I can. However, there are some recipes, like this one, that really do need that extra bit of sweetness.
In this recipe I used monk fruit sweetener, but Stevia can also be used if you prefer. Organic raw honey also gives a lovely flavour, but be aware of the colour. With it’s deep yellow colour it will likely change the final colour of the drink. Date syrup is perfect to sweeten almost anything, but again, be wary of the colour.
Ok – lets get to the lavender lemonade recipe!
