Lavender has a strong flavor. Lemon has a strong flavor. Put them together, and they play incredibly well off each other. This cooling and refreshing sugar-free lavender lemonade is the perfect thirst quencher. It's great for springtime get-togethers right up through the dog days of summer when temps are at their highest. With fresh lavender and freshly-squeezed lemons, this lemonade is clean, refreshing, and ideal for relaxing after a long day.
When making this lavender lemonade, it's essential to make sure you use culinary-grade lavender or lavender from your own garden. Either way, be absolutely positive it's free from any chemicals or pesticides. And unlike a lot of other lavender lemonade recipes you can find, this one doesn't use any added sugar or simple syrup.

- If the lavender taste is a little on the strong side, try using half of what the recipe calls for.
