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 damn milk stand and bolt right for the lemonade. SO. GOOD. The best part is when I can taste the sugar crystals. Speaking of state fairs…I’ve lived in MN now for 8 years and have never been to the Minnesota State Fair. I just can’t get myself to cheat on Wisconsin. I feel like I’ve grown up in a little Midwest bubble and I don’t even know if all other states have state fairs.

SoCal State Fair? Phoenix State Fair? Do those exist or is it just a midwest thing? Also- I feel like there are two types of state fair goers. The ones that go 5 times and eat ONE OF EVERYTHING or the ones that go once for 2 hours and have to get the eff out of there before they see another child on a leash (ME).

Leftover Lavender

So, this lavender lemonade rocks my socks. When Davida was in town, we shot a whole bunch of content for SHEuncovered. I made a sugar scrub that required dried lavender, which I had never purchased before. Like always, I purchased way too much of it. What to do with so much dried lavender? Insert —> lavender lemonade.

No Sugar Lemonade

Lin and I decided we wanted the lemonade to be made with honey instead of refined sugar, so we did a little research (THANK YOU MARTHA) on how to make a honey simple syrup. NOT HARD AT ALL. All you do is boil honey + water, reduce to low, and let simmer. This is where we added in the dried lavender. From there, let the honey lavender simple syrup sit in the fridge overnight to REALLY infuse. Then, it’s time to whip up your amazing honey lemonade.

The rest of the recipe is pretty straight forward…

  • lots of lemon juice
  • a wee bit of water
  • lavender-infused simple syrup
  • ICE ICE BABY
