Very pronounced lavender flavor with a pretty pink color!! My kitchen smelled like aromatherapy during and afterwards! I used dried organic culinary lavender (which I ordered over the internet). It seemed that the lavender flavor was even more pronounced the following day. To make 1 cup of lemon juice I used about 7 lemons.
This is way too much sugar. I had to fill the rest of the 2 qt pitcher up to dilute it and it's still way too sugary. Great concept though. I used lavender leaves instead of flowers and 1/4 cup reconstituted lemon juice since I had no fresh on hand. Next time I think I'll cut the sugar in half add a little more lemon juice and enough water to fill a 2 qt pitcher.
Great inspiration but way too much lavender. A full cup of flowers for only 5 cups of liquid made it very "perfumey" and even somewhat soapy tasting. Tried again with about a 1/4 of a cup and it was much better.
Yum! I made the full recipe with 1/2 cup of lavendar flowers but they were homegrown which are stronger than most. I made sure to muddle the lavendar in the hot water and squeeze all the lavendar flavor out of the 1/2 cup. Thanks!
The only thing I had to alter was the amount of lavender. After reading some of the reviews I went ahead and only used 1/2 the amount of lavender and it turned out perfectly! Also while the lavender is steeping don't be worried if the color looks blue/green. As soon as you pour it into the lemonade it will turn pink I promise! Great recipe I will definitely make it again!
