This Strawberry Lavender Lemonade uses strawberries, lavender simple syrup, and lemons to make the perfect summer drink. For a delicious summer cocktail, add gin or vodka.
It’s strawberry season! The strawberries are juicy, flavorful, and incredibly inexpensive right now, so it’s time to eat them. Normally, when I buy strawberries, I end up devouring them all long before I remember to put them in a pie, ice cream, smoothie, or lemonade. A few weeks ago, however, I saw strawberries on sale for about $1 a quart, and I bought… well, I bought a LOT. When I got them home, I started cleaning, hulling, and freezing those lovely little bright red berries. After freezing batches and batches of strawberries, I noticed a few jugs of a pre-made strawberry lemonade in our pantry, and thought, “Game on! I make better lemonade than that!” This Strawberry Lavender Lemonade is better than pre-made lemonade, is refreshing, delicious, and best of all– it’s easy!
