2 1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers (I used lavender from last years harvest)
2 1/2 cups cold water
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
In a large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Remove from the heat; add lavender. Cover and let stand for 1 hour.
Strain, discarding lavender. Stir in cold water and lemon juice. Serve over ice. Yield: 6 servings.
