This recipe combines the sweet taste of Me & the Bees Lemonade with the light, refreshing taste of lavender. And it looks beautiful! It's a summer favorite.
Yield: 1 serving
- 12 oz (one bottle) Me & the Bees Classic Lemonade
- 1/2 oz Lemon juice
- Small scoop of ice
- Sparkling water
- Lemon wheels & dried lavender sprigs (for garnish)
- Lavender simple syrup*
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp dried lavender buds
- 1 tbsp butterfly pea flowers
In a shaker, combine 3 oz lemonade, 1 oz lavender simple syrup, .5 oz lemon juice and ice, then shake (for larger batches, multiply oz quantities by number of servings desired, using a pitcher instead of a shaker, stirring 20 times). Pour drink into a 10-12 oz glass, over ice, top with a dash of sparkling water, and garnish with a freshly cut lemon wheel and a sprig of dried lavender. Enjoy!
*How to make lavender simple syrup:
Add sugar and water in a saucepan, bring to a simmer, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the dried lavender buds and butterfly pea flowers, continuing to simmer, and stir occasionally for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, then cover for 2 hours to continue steeping. Strain out the lavender and pea flowers, then funnel into a glass container (keep refrigerated). It will be a beautiful, deep lavender color! You can substitute the homemade lavender simple syrup with an off-the-shelf brand such as Monin or Torani.
