How to Make Lavender Lemonade

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make Lavender Lemonade:

  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Honey
  • Lemon Juice
  • Dried Lavender

These simple lemonade ingredients are things you probably already have around the house. Just pick up some edible lavender and fresh lemons when you’re ready to make this pretty purple lemonade.

This Lavender Lemonade recipe is so easy to make, but here are a few quick tips:

  • First and foremost, fresh lavender is a must!
  • I recommend adding some purple or blue food coloring to make the color even brighter and prettier, but that is totally optional. It’s a fun twist if you’re making this mocktail for baby or wedding showers, but it’s totally not necessary.
  • Fresh lemonade is so easy to make on a stove, and we are just infusing it with a bit of lavender to kick things up a notch.
  • If you want to make this a cocktail, just add in a bit of vodka, whiskey, champagne…whichever type of alcohol you prefer for your drinks.

What kind of lavender can you cook with?

If you’re going to make this Lavender Lemonade Recipe, you’re going to need dried lavender. You’re going to love the fragrant, pretty, and unique flavor combination of the lemon juice and lavender flowers.

Whole Foods sells fresh lavender, but you can also order it on Amazon.  You want to be sure you buy lavender meant for eating/cooking, so Whole Foods is an easy way to make sure you’re getting the best kind.  Again, not working with them, but they’re such a great spot.  They make eating and drinking fun, delicious, and fresh foods (our Vanilla Lavender Scones are one of my favorite brunch recipes!) so easy!

The Perfect Purple Party Drink – Lavender Lemonade

This Lavender Lemonade Recipe is always a party hit. Everyone always asks for the recipe!

Most people haven’t tried a drink like this, but once they do, they’re hooked! I love the zesty citrus and light floral  flavor combination. SO DELICIOUS! I can taste it just looking at the pictures. Divine!

Some of our other favorite cocktails for a brunch party are Sparkling Strawberry Margarita Punch, Easy Holiday Punch, and Sherbet Mimosas.

Lavender Cocktail Recipe

I made this Lavender Lemonade a non-alcoholic drink, but it can easily be turned into a lavender cocktail! This recipe is kid friendly as is, but is would also be great for an adult only brunch or tailgate party.

Just add a splash of vodka, or whichever alcohol you prefer. The sky is the limit! A bit of champagne would turn it into a nice, bubbly drink for bridal showers or brunch. You could also use tequila instead and make Lavender Margaritas! I think I’m onto something…

Ingredients

  • 6 cups water divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 Tbsp dried lavender
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • Lemon slices and lavender petals for garnish
  • Blue or purple food coloring optional

Instructions

  1. Over medium heat, combine two cups of water and sugar, bringing to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Turn off of the heat and stir in agave nectar and lavender.
  2. Allow mixture to steep for 2 hours (less if you want less of a lavender taste). Strain the liquid, pressing the lavender down to make sure you get all of those juices into your mixture!
  3. In a large pitcher, combine freshly squeezed lemon juice, lavender mixture and water.
  4. Feel free to add a couple drops of blue or purple food coloring if you want more color than the lavender provides. Makes the lemonade especially cute for those brunches! Serve over ice.
  5. Enjoy!

Crysta
I made this with cooking lavender but my lemonade isn't the lovely purple :( any tips
    Becky Hardin
    You can use a little food coloring. Not quite as fun, but still works!!
    Andie @ micibakes
    mine is more pink, but still pretty :)
      Becky Hardin
      Glad it's still pretty :) Yeah it gets pink very easily. Happy New Year Andie!

Becky, we are having a lavender bridal shower. I would like mine to look exactly like yours. So what exactly did you use? Some readers are saying theirs is not as pretty or is pinkish. The color as well as the taste is a big deal for me. Thanks for sharing, Susan
    Becky Hardin
    You can use some purple food coloring...usually you can actually find that instead of mixing blue and red. That way you can control the color much more. I didn't use anything special other than that. Hope that helps!!
      Lizette
      I used the neon once and added a bit of pink to the purple
EliZabeth
Would adding champagne Instead of vodka work? Also how much does this make?
Jill
I am making this for my niece's bridal shower. I'm curious how far in advance I can make it? Is it best fresh? Or would it be ok to make it 2-3 days in advance? Thank you!!
Rachel
How do I dry out the fresh lavender?
Karen
The best lavender lemonade recipe I have tried. Steeping the lavender for 2 hours makes all the difference. Thanks for sharing.
