Happy Hour: Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade

Tomiko and I tried a cup of lavender lemonade when we were travelling through Prince Edward County last summer. It was delicious!

To make it more obvious that you’re drinking or serving the lavender lemonade, try adding a drop of red and two drops of blue food colouring to the whole batch to lightly tint it purple. The lavender flavour is also quite mild, since I didn’t want to feel like I was drinking soap.

Enjoy this lavender lemonade on porch or at a barbecue this summer!
