Recipe: Lavender & Holy Basil Infused Lemonade
6 cups water
2 cups fresh lemon juice (don’t thrown away the lemons peels! Compost them or make citrus infused cleaning vinegar)
3 tbsp dried holy basil
3 tbsp dried lavender
1 cup simple syrup (2 cups water 2 cups sugar- heat water on stove top and dissolve the sugar into it. Store in the fridge and keep on hand for iced teas, cocktails, and lemonade like this! Step it up a level with my Peach Lavender Simple Syrup.)
Heat 2 cups of the water in a small saucepan on medium.
Once the water is heated, add the lavender and holy basil.
Allow the herbs to steep in the water as it cools for 20 minutes.
In a large picture, stir together lemon juice, simple syrup, and the remaining 4 cups of water.
Strain the herbal infusion into the pitcher and stir. Serve over ice.
