Lush Lemon Lavender Libation

Memorial Day weekend is kicking off the summer party season!  When entertaining, I love to refresh my guests with a fancy beverage, but sometimes finding a virgin treat can be a challenge.  So…I mix up my own!  This sophisticated blend of lemon, lavender and mint is a show stopper with its layers of color and depth of flavor.  Share this at your next toast-worthy occasion.  


 

Lush Lemon Lavender Libation

Serves 10

 

For the Lavender Lemon Juice: 

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons dried lavender flowers

 

Soak lavender in lemon juice for 4 hours.  Once done, the color is unbelievable!  Strain.  Save the lavender for garnishing.

 

For the Candy Lemon Syrup:

  • 1 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  •  4 teaspoons lemon zest

 

Blend honey, lemon juice and zest to create your syrup. 

 

To serve: 

  • 40 oz sparkling water
  • 40 mint leaves, crushed
  • the remaining lavender buds from the lavender lemon juice, for garnishing 
  • lemon slices, for garnish  
  • lots of ice 

 

Per serving, fill a 12 oz glass with ice.  Add in 4 crushed mint leaves.  Cover with 4 oz of sparkling water.  Stir in 2 tablespoons candy lemon syrup.  Top with 2 teaspoons lavender lemon juice and let your guests mix their own so they can see the beautiful layered color effect.  Garnish with a few lavender buds and a slice of lemon.  Watch your guests sip in bliss!
