Recipe for Life: Honey-Lavender Lemonade

Recipe for Life

Sometimes simple is best. This tangy and refreshing lemonade is not-too-sweet and delightfully fragrant. A pitcher of it will disappear rather quickly on a hot summer afternoon.


  • 6 lemons, juiced
  • 120 mL (1/2 cup) honey
  • 2 drops lavender essential oil
  • Ice water, 2.5 L (about 10 cups)
  • Lavender sprigs (optional)
  • Lemon slices or peel twists (optional)


Combine lemon juice, honey, and lavender oil in a large pitcher.

Add water to dilute to taste.

Pour over ice in your favorite glasses and garnish with lemon slices/peel twists and lavender sprigs.
