Update -Beverage making trial:
So since havin to mostly give up my coffee, and seriously cut down my caffeine…..Iv been trying alternative beverages.
Hot lemonade, Hot limeade(which is AWESOME for kicking the coffee habit!!!!), so many varieties and blends of teas, hot chocolates, the Cacao drink thats been advertised as a coffee subsitute (not for me unfortuntely), Mudwatr(still need to pop open the package and actually make it), etc
So tonight, I tried making hot lavender lemonade with cane sugar.
It actually turned out pretty well!!!
I absolutely LOVE homemade hot Lemonade!!!!
And I absolutely LOVE Honey lemonade!!
****And I absolutely loved a few blends of lavender lemonade that I tried out at past summer festivals- some blends are disgusting though so be ware- *****
I was hanging out tonight with @earthnspiritsprite (chit chatting about some pieces for #MerMay ) and we got to chatting about lavender flavored drinks & I decided to make warm lavender lemonade- fyi it needs about 15 mins to sit and combine flavors to REALLY have that lavender punching power!
We decide to use sugar this time, but next time Im trying it with honey……once I experiment with honey to lemons ratio abit more 🙂
Hot Lavender Lemonade Recipe:
5 wedges of lemon
8 spoons sugar
3 tbls dried lavender
50ozs distilled water
Heat up a 30oz water –
Pour 15oz over crushed lavender in cup. Let steep for 10 minutes.
In pitcher, squeeze lemon wedges into aroun 20oz of water- leave wedges in pitcher.
Pour rest of hot water into pitcher and add sugar, stir.
Strain in steeped lavender- if you dont have a fine mesh strainer you can use a paper towel over the pitcher mouth-, stir and let sit for around 15mins.
*Quick Note: Drink will turn pinkish!*
*Wubbster is still iffy on it, but he is not a lavender fan anyways…he has taken 3 drinks out of my cup tho 🙂
* Lavender lemonade calms down a stressed out mind, is VERY refreshing and healthy- its great iced for a summer time drink-
