You can make this refreshing and summery lavender lemonade recipe with or without peaches: it is delicious both ways.

The best way to prepare the water with the lavender buds is by slowly infusing it overnight in the fridge.

If you add peaches to the water, it will absorb its flavor and aroma as well. Lavender and peach, as you’ll see, get along perfectly.

The next day, you’ll have a delicate but aromatic base to make your lavender lemonade.
Use honey to sweeten the lavender lemonade: it complements the flavors much better than sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 peach
  • 1/2 teaspoon lavender dried buds
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 glass water

  1. Clean and slice the peach.
  2. Place the lavender buds and the peach slices in a glass - or pitcher if you are multiplying servings -, and fill it with water.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Drain water and discard the lavender buds. Once added lemon and honey, you can return the peach to the glass for a “mangia e bevi,” eat and drink experience.
  5. Squeeze in the lemon - avoid seeds of course - and add the honey. Stir well until totally amalgamated.
  6. Serve your peachy lavender lemonade cold, garnished with a fresh lavender sprig.
