Lavender lemonade is both soothing and refreshing, perfect for a moment of relaxation after a stressful day. The delicate, aromatic flavors of the lavender tone down the zesty citrus taste of the lemon juice to create a harmonious combination.

On hot, sticky, afternoons I love to make a pitcher of lavender lemonade to have ready for when everyone comes home from school and work. Enjoying a glassful with lots of ice is the perfect ritual to help us all cool off and forget about the day as we relax into our evening. Plus, the natural stress-relieving properties of lavender make it the ideal drink to help you unwind.

🗒️ Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Lavender simple syrup: Lavender syrup is the prominent flavor of lavender lemonade. You can buy it, but if you want all of the health benefits, then making it yourself using dried lavender buds is a better option. 
  • Lemon juice: Use either fresh or bottled lemon juice to give your lemonade a citrus zest.
  • Vanilla extract: Gives your drink some extra sweetness without extra sugar!

    Such a pretty color! I used to think lavender only belonged in my bathtub, LOL But I had some lavender rice served with halibut at a local restaurant recently and it was absolutely delicious. I’ll be trying your lavender lemonade soon!
