How to make lavender lemonade:

Put the large pot of water on the stove and make it hot, but not boiling. Add lavender to it and make sure all the lavender is well steeped.

Leave on the stove for 20 minutes, and make sure it doesn’t boil.

While the lavender is steeping, juice the lemons.

After the lavender has been steeping for 20 minutes, strain the lavender flowers. You need about 6 cups of lavender water.

Keeping the lavender water warm, add in the honey, and mix in until it dissolves.

Lastly, add the lemon juice, and then refrigerate until it’s cold.

Now, enjoy this refreshing drink. It should have just a slight taste of lavender.
