Lavender Lemonade: A Refreshing Twist On An Old Classic

By Sarah Hunt, AZFB Communications Intern



The first time I had lavender lemonade was at one of my local favorite restaurants: The Bistro in Queen Creek, Arizona. They have TONS of delicious dishes and drinks, I highly recommend them!

Lavender is not my favorite scent but I don’t hate it either; I use it in the form of essential oil to help me go to sleep. But this lemonade… WOW. It’s delicious and definitely a crowd favorite, even if you don’t like the smell of lavender. The taste is totally different than the scent (especially when combined with sugar and lemonade). 😉 If you want to try your hand at making this delicious lemonade for yourself, here’s a great recipe to use!



Lavender Lemonade

(original recipe on website here)


Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 2 hours | Total: 2 hours 5 minutes



  • 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 (From the Cookie Rookie website)

  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 honey 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!
  5. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
