I am on a mission to find a cool, refreshing non-alcoholic summer drink- hoping that we will have some sort of summer of course.
1 small handful of lavender, chopped
2 pints of water
3 tablespoons of white sugar
juice of two lemons
Add all ingredients to water, except for the elderflower cordial. Bring to the boil, then immediately turn off the heat and let cool. Strain the water so the lavender leaves are removed.
Splash a desired amount of elderflower cordial into glasses, add ice and lavender infused lemonade.
This was utterly delicious. Reduce the sugar if you do not like drinks to be very sweet. 2 tablespoons will probably suffice. The drink was fragrant, fruity, and perfect served very cold.
