Lavender Lemonade Recipe from

I absolutely adore herbs. If you asked me what I’d rather have growing around the farm, I’d start my long list with herbs. Definitely herbs.

And lavender happens to be one of my favorites. Our bees love it as much as I do, it seems, since they are constantly buzzing around the blossoms. Thankfully, we both get the benefit from their attraction to it!

One way I love to use my lavender is in this lovely lavender lemonade recipe. It is absolutely amazing for a sophisticated sip throughout the summer and perfect for parties and entertaining, too!

For my lavender lemonade recipe, I use fresh lavender. If you don’t have fresh lavender on hand, you can use dried lavender. Just be sure you use culinary lavender and not lavender that has been dried for craft uses.

To begin, I add my honey and lavender buds to a large glass pitcher and pour hot water over the honey and lavender, stirring to combine. Then, I stir in my lemon juice and cold water. To serve, I pour over ice and add a sprig of fresh lavender to the glass.

If you prefer to not have lavender buds in your lemonade, you can simply pour the lavender lemonade through a strainer to remove for the pitcher or as serving.

My recipe is non-alcoholic, but of course you could add a bit of gin or vodka for a signature cocktail.

Here’s the printable of my Lavender Lemonade recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do!

    Where can I find culinary lavender sprigs?

      I am so lucky that I can grow lavender in my herb garden but several stores carry culinary lavender including Amazon. Hope you enjoy! xo
