Refreshing Lavender & Mint Lemonade!

a title hereOne of the things I love most about Spring and Summer is drinking an ice cold beverage on a hot day, ideally swinging on my porch and reading something fun. Ninety percent of the time I opt for fruit-infused water, but every now and then I want super cold lemonade–especially if I have people coming over.

This lemonade is super quick, very easy and can be spiked if you are so inclined! I enjoy this, usually with something spicy, like the vegan tacos my husband made yesterday! The best part is that this recipe costs less than $5 and tastes like a fancy mocktail.

Ingredients

  • Frozen Lemonade
  • 7 Mint Leaves
  • 2 Lemons
  • 5 tbs. lavender syrup, get the recipe here
  • Ice cubes
  • Water

Directions

Follow the directions on the can of frozen lemonade, typically it will tell you to add between 3-4 cans of water. Whatever the directions are add another half cup of water to it. Stir until the frozen lemonade is completely mixed. Next, cut one lemon in half and squeeze the juice from both halves into the lemonade mixture. Stir. Next, add the lavender syrup. I never make this very strong, but you can add more to taste if you like. Lastly, add your mint leaves, lemon slices from your leftover lemon, and add plenty of ice, then mix and let it steep.

If you are having an evening gathering and want to kick it up, you can always add citrus vodka instead of the extra water.

Super cheap, super easy, super delicious and summery!
