Welcome to the Summer of the Mocktail!
Not all drinks need alcohol to be refreshing on a beautiful summers day. Sans alcohol or with a bit of Prosecco, after one of these lavender lemonades you'll be lip smacking and asking for more!
Coming to a lemonade stand near you...
We started with this recipe from Joy the Baker, then added our own spin on it by adding in lemon zest and raspberries.
6 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
3 heaping tablespoons culinary lavender
2 cups fresh lemon juice (approximately 8 lemons)
In a pitcher, combine the lavender sugar mixture with the freshly squeezed lemon juice, remaining 4 cups of water, lemon zest and raspberries. Chill in the fridge.
Serve on its own or mixed with a bit of Prosecco for some zip! To be extra cool, serve in a mason jar like the wannabe hipster you are.
Cheers! What is your favourite thirst quencher for the summer?
