Lavender Lemonade is one of the most refreshing cocktails! Make it as sweet as you’d like using a homemade simple syrup using organic cane sugar or switch things up and use honey instead! Other ways to make this specialty cocktail your own is using other herbs besides or along with the lavender! Try adding mint or basil leaves for fun. Infusing your own flavor is exactly like the name of “simple syrup” means.
