Lavender Pink Lemonade

 Who can say no to pink lemonade on a hot day? And the pink comes from the lavender, so there are no worries about artificial dyes. When you add the lemon to the sweet, lavender tea the water turns from purple to pink because of the acid! It's so cool!

4 Cups of Water
2/3 Cup of Sugar (if you're quitting sugar like KM's last post you could probably use honey or maple syrup)
2 Tablespoons of Dried lavender
Juice of 2 Large Lemons

Boil the water and add the sugar to make make a simple syrup, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. 

Take your syrup off the stove and add lavender. Let steep until you can taste the lavender - about 15 minutes. 

Squeeze the lemons. Taste them. If they aren't very sour, use more. Don't worry about the seeds.

Add the lemon juice. Watch for the awesome color change! Strain out the lavender and the seeds. 

Chill and Enjoy!

    1. You have to tell me if it works. I hope the color change wasn't just from something in the local water.
