Lemonade with Lavender

Happy summer from all of us at the Blue Moon Lavender Farm in Sequim, Washington. Around here, lemonade is the drink of the summer! A real lemonade made with lemons, and for a surprising twist, a bit of culinary lavender added to the mix.

You can use culinary lavender for both sweet and savory dishes. A little goes a long way. Use the purple buds, not the leaves or stems. Can be used fresh off the stem or dried and packaged in jars. We grow, use and sell only Royal Purple (an English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia) a fragrant purple beauty, which explodes with color in early summer and stays purple after it's dried.


1 cup sugar

1 cup boiling water

1 teaspoon culinary lavender

juice of 2 lemons

2 lemons, sliced

2 quarts ice water

2 cups ice cubes

Use 1 gallon or larger glass pitcher or jar. Combine sugar, lavender and boiling water until sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients, stir to combine. Add sugar to taste.



Fresh lavender harvest - a great experience. The heady smell, the flowers tacky from the essential oils, the shed full of hanging bundles - yes, summer is here at the Blue Moon Lavender Farm.   [Read More]
