I love Lemonade

I LOVE LEMONADE AND LEMONADE LOVES ME.

There, I said it.

I am a total sucker for lemonade. Like at the Wisconsin State Fair, I bypass the milk stand and bolt right for the lemonade. SO. GOOD. The best part is when I can taste the sugar crystals at the bottom.

I also love that I can physically see the lemons being squeezed at the stand. That’s how you know the lemonade is really good…fresh lemon juice!

No Sugar Lemonade

Linley and I decided that we wanted this lavender lemonade to be made with honey instead of refined sugar to lighten things up a bit and to add better flavor. Thus the “no sugar lemonade.” So? When in doubt, make a honey simple syrup.

Of course, our honey simple syrup was infused with lavender to make lavender lemonade! Don’t let the words simple syrup scare you. Essentially all you have to do is bring honey and water to a boil and boom, you have a simple syrup.

Simple Ingredients

  • honey lavender simple syrup: think about making a double to triple batch to use in cocktails! It will last for a few weeks in your fridge.
  • fresh lemon juice: the fresher the better! We recommend freshly squeezing if possible.
  • water: water is going to help dilute things and take away the extreme sourness from the lemon juice.
