I have been making this recipe since I came across it in college in 2002. If you love lavender, and lemonade, this is a sure thing for you! The flavors combine harmoniously. I use dried lavender flowers instead of leaves. I would like to suggest consuming this beverage within a couple days or so, if it sits in the fridge too long it tastes perfumey.
