Thumbs up Lavender or Rosemary Lemonade

Both the kids and I love, this it's so refreshing and nice on a hot day. I like to serve with an anti-pasto platter little crustles sammies or just fruit and veggies with a dip. See what you think.
Boil 2 cups of water and pour it over either a sprig of rosemary or 1 heaping TAB. of lavender flowers. Steep for about 5 min then remove the herbs you chose. Add1/3 cup of sugar OR honey stir to dissolve.Pour into a quart jar add 1/4 cup lemon juice and fill the rest of the way with icy cold water. Taste adjusting the sweetness or the lemon Serve ove ice in a nice tall glass Adding a sprig of rosemary OR lavender if you like.

Sounds great. I'ma suggest that to a friend of mine who does lamb tacos, cookies and lemonade at the local farmer's market. She'll get a kick out of it.

Cheers.

Oh, kadesma, they both sound very refreshing! I have some lavender growing in the front yard, sounds like something very good to try with some of the flowers!
